“Mom…?”

“Yes…?”

“Can you help me build a Myspace page tonight…?”

Until next time-

How To Mope Like Eeyore When Your Kid Goes On An Overnighter

“Mom?”

“Yes?”

“George invited me over to spend the night tonight.  Can I go?”

“Sure. Do you need any help packing stuff?”

“No. I got it.”

A few minutes pass...

“Are they here to get you already?”

“Mom, I gotta go.  Are you going to be OK?”

“Oh my God, your mother has a life you know! Go have fun!”

“OK, bye Mom.  I love you.”

“I love you too.”

Three hours later in the peace and quiet of our home…

I’ve opened the refrigerator 17 times … you aren’t in there.

I wanted to call you three times but thought better of it.

I found myself watching one of your programs and with a  glass of wine.  The wine didn’t help. By the way, who is  Ichigo Kurosaki and why was he given Soul Reapers power by Rukia Kuchiki?

I walked the dog. We both pouted.

I tried to read my Dreamweaver book.  I got through two sentences before I picked up one of your Bionicles.

I’ve folded all the laundry – even matched all the socks.  I really hate socks.

I washed my hair brush.

I plucked my eyebrows.

I curled up in your chair with your blanket.

Really, I’m fine.

Love,

Your Mom.

But what time are you coming home?

Until next time,
