She cracks me up

My daughter just came up to me, wrapped her arms around me in a firm,loving embrace and I thought she was going to say,


"Happy birthday, darling mother, I love you".  I was all gooey over the emotional bonding going on.


Instead, she whispered in my ear,


"One year closer to dying!".

About quirkycharm

I like to think that I have a certain quirky charm but I am probably being optimistic. Acquired taste, perhaps, which many don't acquire. This is about my fifth blog out there. My hosting companies kept going out of business or my IT exhusband kept hacking into them and I would move again. I don't do twitter, I barely do facebook, I don't try and 'monetize' my blog. I love my husband, my grown children and my job and this particular incarnation of oversharing my life comes at a time when I am the most content that I have ever been. I write always, sporadically during the good stuff and exhaustingly during the bad.

    Well…..I do love that sense of humor! Happy Birthday, anyway, Kitty! πŸ™‚

    Thanks, Lauri!

    It was emotional bonding in the way we do it in our household, I guess!

    My daughter has a very similar sense of humor. I introduced her to a girlfriend at work and we were all getting bawdy. So I said "My daughter, I raised her from diapers to maxipads."And my dear 15 year old (at the time) said "Yes, mom, and I am taking you from maxipads to Depends."This was back when girls had more than 4 periods a year. πŸ˜›

    Happy birthday Kitty. I sooo wonder where your daughter gets her sense of humour from??? hmmmmmmmmm………

    p.s. I now have good excuse for cancelling last night, woke up this morning sick.

  5. Happy birthday, Kitty. I would say that is her idea of joking but letting you know that she knows it is your birthday! Glad she gave you a hug!!
