So as we have previously established Crazy is often hereditary, and in my case runs on both sides of the family. But my Mom, well, she is special. Special in so many ways...the best part is she has NO CLUE that she is so very special, which almost always makes it hilarious.
One day, we were sitting in a beauty salon reading Cosmo, the type of magazine you would NEVER find in my house. My parents are very much intellectuals, I think my love off reality tv, trash and kitsch is a straight rebellion of their intellectual upbringing of me.
We are sitting there getting our pedis when she blurts out "Boy! I better hurry up!"
My response of course is "HUH?"
Mom: This article says the average woman has sex with 3.4 partners in her lifetime- I'm in my 60's and I have only ever had sex with you Dad!
Now if I told you this was the first or the last time my Mother has tried to have awkward sex conversations with me...well that would be a big fat lie...but then again, it could be worse...I could have actually walked in on them....
Oh, TOVA DARLING, thanks you for embracing our awkwardness...
