You know how you worry about adding your Mom to your Facebook account and that she might see all that crazy stuff you can find at facebookfails.com? This story isn’t as bad as that, but it’s more proof that doing social media means your family gets even MORE involved in your life.
Take for instance, my post about the “super bed”.
My mom is a wonderful woman who worries and cares deeply about her kids making good decisions. This lead her to shoot me the following email after reading that post:
And then my response:
I love it when you take what I write seriously.
I already measured and a Cal. King wouldn’t take up my whole room. In fact, it wouldn’t be much more than what my bed with the wooden extension takes up. The post is just a flight of fancy and for my readers. If I do it any time soon, it’ll be a Cal King regardless of “voting”.
Of Mom. You’re so pretty Sometimes I want to pet your face. Sorry if there was anyone out there that thought I’d actually do the super bed. That’s just crazy talk. I’d never do something that ridiculous. (click here to see a video of me doing something crazy/ridiculous) This email exchange led her to send me the following email:
Much eye rolling ensued till I realized, like many a Mom frequently is, she hit the biggest nail on the head… hard…
1. Since you are so close to graduation and had talked about moving after graduation wouldn’t it make more sense to upgrade after you move?
Thanks Mom. You’re right. I will be moving in the next fee months to lord knows where for work when I’m done with school. And I’m not interested in chain sawing a new bed in half just to get it into whatever apartment I end up in…. Or am I?
PS ❤ u Mom
