10.) She calls my Dad "Dick." Not because his name is Dick, Rick, or even Richard. It's Dick just because she calls it the way she sees it and she usually sees things in a funny way. She calls him Dick so much that my long-time BFF's Mom thought that my Dad's real name was Dick (it's actually Mike for those who don't know him).
9.) She lets my overdue library fines slide. Yes, yes, I know I should always return them in a timely fashion but sometimes life gets in the way. Right now, I'm sitting beside a stack of books that I got out of her library before she went in the hospital that I haven't returned yet. Please forgive me, Library Ladies at PCML* (You know who you are).
8.) She tells everyone that she does my laundry, dishes, and cooking when she's at my house. In all actuality, this is mostly a lie but I don't see the harm in it. Ok, yeah, so she did a couple loads of laundry when Ella was a baby (7 years ago) and she puts together a meal in a crockpot when I get all the ingredients together for her. It makes her feel good to tell everyone she's such a Superstar Grammie.
7.) She calls me constantly to let me know what the weather will be like the next day (sometimes even multiple times a day depending on how Jym Ganahl switches his predictions). I haven't watched the weather in 34 years--true story. Remember a few weeks ago when it snowed randomly on a Wednesday? I only wore a light shirt to see her at the hospital because I had no idea the weather was going to be bad that day. I was a little miffed at her that day for not telling me to wear a coat.
6.) She has the ability to make me feel like Luke is normal despite his weirdness (need I even mention the poop-bot?) and that eventually I will be able to relate to Ella despite her girly qualities.
5.) I can call her anytime day or night and complain about whatever is pissing me off at the moment (with the converse being true, as well). She always unquestioningly takes my side about everything even if I'm doing a 180 from my previous day's opinion. She's my Yes Man.
4.) I just do
3.) Cause she's my Mom
2.) And I want her back
1.) Right now
