Shit my mom says/does
As you may or may not know, my mom is slightly cray-cray. I suppose it germinates from a combination of paranoia, cluelessness, and a lack of rational thinking. It is mostly frustrating, and at times, results in hilarity. Here are some of the ridiculous things she’s done or said, taken from my Twitter feed.
2013-10-26 Had an awesome lunch + shopping session with Lauren Fleming.
I got a few things from Mango and mom asked me what that was.
I said it’s a brand.
She replied, no it’s a plane.
… Yes mom, it’s also a fruit
