Oh, yeah...

Mom's coming down Friday for Christmas.

I love my mom dearly.

But I live in something of a shithole. And I don't have a girlfriend. And I'm overweight. And every single one of those things will become a lecture at some point over the weekend.

Anybody up for some serious drinking early next week?

My mom doesn't organize it. She just tells me that I should, and how to do it.

I know that at some point I will this weekend hear "you know if you cleaned this place up and lost some weight, you'd feel better about yourself and probably find a girlfriend".

It's the mom trifecta. I think she keeps score. It's like Yahtzee.

I actually fold my underwear. I don't hang it, but I can see where it could be used as bait if it's really sexy.

Mine isn't.

"Hey mom, I had some skin-on sushi and it doesn't really agree with me at all."

"That's okay. I'll just wait here while you go. I can talk to you through the bathroom door."

Oh sweetie, you're OK...It's just what Mums do.

I go through the same thing when my mom comes ... different "talking points" but the same procedure ... Mostly I cope by imagining her with an "off" or "mute" button ....

I have advice for everything, don't I?
My parents can be troublesome sometimes, but they don't do any of this. I am grateful as I read this post. I still have advice, like I always do. AND, same as always, feel free to disregard at whim.

I do get to live with occasional nagging, the easiest thing to do is agree, blow it off or give some brief positive information and CHANGE THE SUBJECT with seemingly related questions. The objective is to make mom talk about herself. You will seem interested in her life, and she will be distracted from prying.

"You should clean this place."

"Yes, mom, you're right. How is the house back home doing? How is so-and-so your neighbor?"

"You should lose weight."

"Yes mom, you're right. I've been walking the dog for over half an hour a day. Do you like walking? What's your favorite activity? How's the garden doing? Did you get some nice vegetables/flowers this year?"

"You should get a girlfriend"

"Yes mom, you're right. Golly, it's so hard to meet new people. How did you and dad meet? How did your parents meet? Was dating different in the sixties?"

Two words: Serenity RPG.

Next week.

Think about what kind of character you want to be. :)
