mommy dearest..

talked with my mom today..

she said she's not looking forward to her birthday (feb. 12) i'd tell you how old she's turning, but she told me this, and i quote,

'becky, i'll chop you up in little bits and drop you in the garbage disposal if you ever tell a living soul how old i am.' (in quite a matter of fact tone, i might add.)

then she adamantly told me her obituary notice will have NO mention of her age, otherwise the person responsible will be promptly diced and sliced and disposed of accordingly.

i love my mom.
she'd be the most unassuming serial killer.

Hey!
My sister's birthday is on the 12th, as well! I'd tell everyone how really, really OLD she is but since I'm only 2.5 years younger than her, everyone'll figure out just how old *I* am... so my trap is also firmly shut! :)

Re: Hey!
BAH HA!

what is it with the whole age thing? i mean, even in livejournal i'll go to people's bios to see how old they are, and they'll reveal the month, day, but no year. COME ON people! i'm proud that i'm still LiViNG, o.k.? god damn it, i'll wear my age like a fargin' badge! I'M 38, 38, 38 and i LOVE IT!!!!! age really means nothing more to me than : do you remember charlie's angels bubble gum trading cards and wax lips? it's a state of reference. honestly, i still feel like i'm in my 20's, only because i still have the same likes, dislikes, and hobbies that i did back then. who knows - maybe i'll still like listening to bjork, thrift store shopping and walking 10 miles a day when i'm 90. let's hope..

Re: Hey!
Well, I don't mind revealing my age to YOU... just don't tell anyone else... but I'm 21! Shhh!!! See, I'm not old... I'm not old at all! It just so happens I have an old soul, hence my pristine recall of Charlie's Angels (even before Cheryl left!) and bubble gum trading cards (but what the heck were the wax lips???). And although I dig Bjork, there is NO way I could ever relate to walking 10 miles a day... to quote Calvin, "I just can't relate to that kind of work ethic." :o)

pammy
does that go for me also? or can I inadvertantly let it slip? I am proud of her and her age, and that she has taken care of herself and looks younger. ---I hope she passed that ability on---

p.s. pammy
Wait, I am trying to imagine her with a gun-no a knife-no learning kung fu and breaking someones neck- not working is it?

Re: p.s. pammy
HA HA!!!!
the pure thought of that visual is cracking me UP!

seriously, pam, i detected an ounce of truth behind mom's threat yesterday..you should've heard it! i told her, 'yeah, but ma, you'll be DEAD, what's the diff? talk about VAIN till the end..'

and she said, 'well, then. i guess i'll be VAIN TILL the END!!!'

she also murmured the most adorable phrase yesterday..in my entire life i have never heard this uttered by anyone except for maybe in a jimmy stewart film, (oops, that comment might just cost me my life!) she said bob & her were in a restaurant and they saw some friends sitting at a nearby table, and mom said, 'hmm. FANCY THAT..jim and judy are here.' isn't that just the cutest thing EVER???

she does look pretty awesome, though. and YOU definitely got the youth gene, as well. you, with your non wrinkles and porcelain skin..grr. i hate you, i love you, i hate you, i love you..

My mother has had me swear that when she goes, there will be no funeral, no embalming and no fancy coffin. There will be a big party held at a hotel or restaurant and lots of talking about how wonderful she was.

I've made her promise not to go for a long time.

moms. i swear.

i think your mom's request is noble, though. i mean, the whole death thing is just so morbid. you SHOULD remember them as they were in life, not the inanimate object left behind. so, does she want cremation then? no recognizable evidence? maybe your mom should consider making a video before she dies that can be played at the party? i actually heard of a service here in california that does that..only in hollywood.
