Happy Hump Day from your Hump Day Fox, Danica!
I was going to title this Ode to Mama…but I’m so not a poet. Instead, I’ll have to try to be amusing and endearing without sounding idiotic.
I talk about my family a lot over at Unearthly Musings, my blog. They’re endlessly amusing and loud and yeah, they embarrass the hell out of me. My mom, while she likes to pretend that she’s this sweet, little old lady, is a ring leader.
When I was in high school and college and trying to be cool, she was the mom all my friends liked. Our house was the place to be. Why? Because she was always trying to feed them, she had/has a sick sense of humor, and she didn’t try to get into our business.
Did she say things that made me want to sink through the floor? Hell yes! Like the time she had the back massager and put it on the demon spawn (cat) we still have. The cat loved it because she’s sick and Mom looked at my friends to say “The cat likes the vibrator.” *dies* Yes, my friends loved that one and they still talk about it nearly 15 years later.
But the best thing about Mom is that she’s protective. As the oldest of five kids, she’s had to be what with her younger brother getting into fights and making her finish them. When my siblings and I came along, she was the mama bear who we all knew would protect us from everything. Even Michael Meyers and Freddy Krueger. Yes, she is that bad ass.
So here’s to Mom, who has supported me in my writing smut, has read my books and said, “I don’t see why it’s called erotica.” Bwahaha. Love you, Mom.
Very cool tribute. I’ll bet your mom is hoot.
That said, I don’t think parents should deliberately embarrass their kids, especially in front of peers.
As a dad, I’ve done my best NOT to embarrass my kids … though my wife often delighted in doing so. Hmm.
Interesting that you mentioned poetry, because that’s what I have in store for tomorrow.
That’s the kicker, Jeff. She never set out to embarrass us, it just happened that way, LOL and yes, she’s a definite hoot 🙂 Yeah, I’m sooo not a poet, so I’ll just leave the odes and rhyming to you, my friend!
well, after you read my poem tomorrow, you may wish to take back the odes and rhyming … and give it to someone else.
Aw, your mom sounds great! My mom is great too- but she’s a kind’ve private person so I don’t talk about her much online. I talk more about my grandma’s and my great grandma…because, well, they’re dead and unlikely to be online. 🙂
Thanks for the Goodreads review, BTW!
Oh, if she reads this she’ll probably want smack me, but she’s a good sport about it. LOL
I needed to do it because it’s a great book and I keep forgetting (until now) to thank you for the Goodreads review you posted about my stuff 🙂
Your mom sounds a lot like you. This post was a very nice tribute to her!
