SHE'S SO/SUCH A DOPE
My mom can't come to the blog right now. She's at the Barnes and Nobles looking for books that will tell her how to be "street". She's doing this because I caught her perched in her Happy Chair this morning wearing her new headphones while trying to make some sort of crazypants hand gesture that would indicate that she's "down with the lingo that all the kids are using these days". I swear, if she hadn't gotten rid of her Barbie stereo turntable a few years back, we'd be looking at the horrifying prospects of a dance party.
I'm blaming my Aunt Chrissy for this one, since she decided to get the old lady an iPad. And because she's my Aunt Chrissy and doesn't know the meaning of "let's take baby steps with my idiot older sister because she's sure to make a hash of it", she went all out and got her more accessories for said iPad than came with our first automobile.
Apparently, headphones are big these days. I can only surmise that Michael Phelps and all of the other fabulous Olympians had something to do with this, since everywhere you look there are attractive young persons walking around with cans on their heads.
In my stupid mo-ther's mind, she looks like this:
So that's the report from Chez Crazy Spinster today. Mo-ther is trying to recapture her youth while simultaneously trying to figure out where the "on" button is on her iPad, and I'm looking for the sedatives so that I might finally get a little peace and quiet around here.
I do hope that your Christmas was swell and that your every wish came true! Until we meet again, I remain your loyal and devoted friend....
With much love,
