A couple of weeks ago I had the following conversation with my mom:
Mom: So, are you going to write anything special on your blog for June 14?
Me: Um, dunno. What day is it on?
Mom: It’s a Sunday.
Me: Nah. I usually don’t write on Saturday and Sunday.
Mom: (sigh, grumble, hiss) Oh.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
As a mom, I am slowly mastering the skill that many moms eventually perfect: the art of passive aggressiveness.
