My mom may not be as amusing as Justin’s dad, over at Shit My Dad Says, but, my mom has a few things to say — and isn’t afraid to say them.
Over the years, I’ve written many of them down, and would like to share them.
I would, however, like to make it clear: my mom is not always politically correct (in fact, she’s never politically correct), she’s not above using a curse word or two, and she’s not one to mince words. She might make you laugh, she might shock you, or even offend you (believe me, I’m often offended by what she says).
People are not made up just of actions, but, also, of the words they say. My mom has quite a few words. And, in spite of some of the things she says, I love her. She’s 88 years old, and I’ve given up trying to change her; I’m finally learning to embrace her, in spite of the shocking things she says.
I don’t ask that you always approve of the things she may say, but, I do ask that you don’t degrade or demean her. My sharing of her words are meant to give a well-rounded portrait of my mother, someone who I write about often. I love and respect my mother, and, I hope that my sharing of her words comes across as such, with maybe a mild dose of poking fun.
These “She Said What?” posts may be just a sentence, spoken by mom, or, they may be the recounting of a conversation; some of the words will be talking about herself, and, more often, they’ll be talking about others.
I hope that you enjoy reading about the things my mother says.
The first official post will make it’s debut this weekend.
