My name is mud

July 11, 2012

Forgot my Mom’s birthday.
Her 60th birthday.
I had it on my calendar and everything!
And her present is being sent seamail.
If it were my father,
I’d get a mail from our beloved and deceased cat,
Barkley, letting me know that she was putting me
on her black list.
Since it is my mother,
I get a sweet note saying she’s glad
I’m okay, and that I hadn’t forgotten her.
(And it’s not even passive aggressive. For real.)
Guess which one I feel
guiltier about?

  1. Oh Noes! that’s a hard one! But she knows you love her. So you need to forgive yourself too.
