I'm visiting my folks. Mom's mad at Dad.
Mom: What are we going to wear tonight?"
Dad: It's still warm. We can wear our summer pajamas.
Mom: No! What are we going to wear?
Dad and I were confused until she came to the cupboard, grabbed the vitamin jar and said "Isn't this what we usually wear?"
Dad : Oh, you mean what vitamins we take.
Mom: You say things like me like I'm stupid! (storms outside)
I swear there's an "I'll show you" gene on her side of the family. She knows if she stomps out of the house that we'll worry about her. Her mom was the same way. Worse. She'd get mad at her husband and vanish for days.
"They're really a lot alike," I told my dad, recently. "Stubborn, paranoid, and quick to strike back at any real or imagined offense. "Will I end up like that too?"
"Not for a long time" Dad said.
