My mom promised to come over and visit me and The Boyf tonight (which I was was super happy about, as we always end up going to visit her and this time i really wanted her to come to us.)
Then, my mom calls me today and says....
Mom: Can you rather come over and see me, Brazen
Me: No, you never come over here. You should come here for a change
Mom: Pleeeeeeaaase, my car is bigger and it would use far more petrol going there than your car would coming here
Me: Nice try mom
Mom: I'll pay for the petrol
Mom: I'll buy you a present... maybe some chocolates
Me: No Mom, I want you to come over and visit me. I can't be bribed.
Mom: I'll make you and The Boyf a nice, big home cooked meal
Me: No......Wait... WAIT.....What? Did you say YOU will make me and The Boyf a home cooked meal??
Mom: yes, I did
Me: Are you serious? I dont even rememebr the last time you cooked.
Mom: Yes, I'm serious. I'll even cook something special
Me: Ok fine. Its a deal. We will come. But if I arrive there and you have pre-made food or microwave meals i'm leaving..*laughs*
Mom: *laughs* Ok. I'll cook you a roast leg of lamb with roast potatoes
Me: No way...really ...a leg of lamb....and some potatoes...Can I invite other people to witness this miracle
Mom: *laughs* Oh stop it, you know i used to cook alot
Me: I dont remember, its been soooo long. I think the last time you made me a big, home cooked meal it was the 90's.
Mom: *laughs* it has not been that long
Me: I should probably bring my camera.
Mom: Stop being silly, Brazen
Me: I'm not being silly, I just want to capture this special moment.I mean, it may never happen again. Maybe we can all pose next to the leg of lamb *chuckles*
Mom: * laughs*
Me: *laughs* I can't wait. I'll bring the wine....
