another conversation with my mother.

mom ” so we have a few gifts for you from your aunt for the baby. we’ll get them to you whenever we see you next.”

me ” well, i’ll be down in june for my shower.”

mom ” ugh. june is so hot.”

me ” well, i need to have the shower before the baby is due. besides the shower is in hermosa beach so it will be cooler there.”

mom ” we’re going to a wedding in june for a second cousin of yours that you don’t know. “

me ” um. okay. who is it and when are you going? “

mom ” it’s june 21 in kansas.”

me ” um..that’s the same date as my shower. “

mom ” well, he comes from an unstable family. you know, he was born out of wedlock. so i want to be there to support him.”

me ” so you’re going to some guys wedding who you barely know instead of my shower?”

mom “you sound like you have a cold. are you sick? “

seriously. and you wonder why we’re not close.
