A Relationship With Your Peace Lily

I asked my Mom how to properly care for my new plant:

From: Mom
To: Me

i would get the soil very wet and let it drain.  just observe it as you do it.  and make sure you don't water it again too soon.  eventually, you and your peace lily will have a deep relationship; she will let you know when to water her, and in gratitude she will continue to bloom and be healthy.  (what am i saying?  why am i talking like that?)

You Should Shave...

From: Mom
To: Me

it is my opinion that you should shave under your arms for your last day of work.

love,
mom

But I'm Not Like That...

From: Mom
To: Me

remember to vote in this tuesday's primary for mass. senate seat.  if i was a controlling type of mother i would say, "of course you're voting for markey,  right?"  but i'm not like that.

This Request Is So Old

From: Mom
To: Me

dear adult children,


whichever one of you has the visitor parking pass, please return it.  jesus.  this request is so old.  i may die from boredom.

Instead of Keeping It Rolled Up in a Ball...


another free suggestion.  just in case you have to wear your sport jacket ever again, instead of keeping it rolled up in a ball on your bed, try hanging it up in the closet conveniently located in your bedroom.

I Just Watched "GIRLS"...

From: Mom

i just watched "girls."  can't anyone be happy on that show for more than five minutes?  i wanted adam and nathalia to be a happy couple.  and why does hannah have to be so repulsive?

Your Hideous Green Winter Jacket

From: Mom
To: Me

it's way past the acceptable time for me to tell you what you shouldn't wear.

however.  i'm sitting in the dining room and on the chair next to me is your hideous green winter jacket.  it is totally ripped at the seam and the stuffing is all exposed. 

my question is: how can you ask me if it is appropriate to wear uggs in your office, and yet have no problem showing up at work wearing that rag/jacket, looking like a street urchin?

I Haven't Been The Same

From: Mom
To: Me

so sorry if i seem a bit irritable and sullen lately.

i haven't been the same since i lost my hat.
