I love my mommy…

Periodically throughout the work day I will E-mail my mother.

I E-mail her about things I’ve read.

What’s happening at work.

Complaints.

Snivels.

Minor accomplishments.

Smart ass comments.

The usual.

Well today I had not heard from her.

Not once.

I counted my sent E-mails.

Total: 35

…I had a lot to say today!

So getting a wee bit worried, I naturally tried to get her attention.

This is the email I sent:

 MOM HAVE YOU DIED?!

 HEY YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS COMPUTER!

 IS MY MOTHER LAYING GASPING FOR BREATH ON THE FLOOR?

 TURNING BLUE FROM CHOKING ON A WALNUT?

 OR SITTING IN A COMATOSE STATE STARING BLANKLY AT THE WALL?

 IF SO…

 GET HER SOME DAMN HELP!

 THAT’S MY MOTHER WE’RE TALKIN ‘BOUT!

 SINCERELY,

 HER VERY CONCERNED DAUGHTER

I thought I made my point.

And lo and behold, I finally received a response.

This is the reply I received:

 Delightfulness,

I picked her off the floor but couldn’t keep her in her chair.  Have her in the lounge taking a nap! Do not fear. There is an ample supply of chocolate for when Mamma Bear wakes up.

And this was my reply again:

Thank goodness!

Might wanna give her some wine.

Liven her up a bit.

😉

Hehe, I know she’s busy being superwoman.

Just makin sure she didn’t have a stroke!

Or that she didn’t give herself a hernia and was stuck in her chair not wanting to move an inch because of it…

Now, I had thought this conversation was going along terrifically.

My mother wasn’t lying dead underneath her desk somewhere.

Her E-mail was indeed in working order.

She had a sassy friend named Bev.

She was going to be fed chocolate and wine.

And so I sat at my desk feeling righteously smug with myself.

And then I get another Email.

It is from Mamma Bear.

Here it is:

 Yes honey,

I am in a comatose state staring blankly at the wall. 

Love,

Your Mother
