things that are a bad idea

(alternate title:  How to Make Your Mother Crazy)

 

  1. Have a discussion in the car on the way home from an evening event in which you promise your mother you will go to bed as soon as is humanly possible after you get home, and then, when you get home, decide that the only bedtime snack you could possibly stomach would be homemade applesauce.  (Which you plan to make yourself but your mother, for some reason, doesn’t want to tell you how to make it)
  2. When your mother, who is still not feeling that great, goes to bed at 9:30, walk into her room at 9:45 to tell her that you and your sibling have noticed that she hasn’t bought peaches for many many months.
  3. Follow the 9:45 visit with a 9:52 visit complaining about the fact your sibling is having a peeled apple for a snack.  Make sure your mother knows how desperately unfair this is, when said mother refuses to peel apples for YOU, even though she has not, in this case, peeled the offending apple.
  4. Follow the 9:52 with a visit for any reason.  Chances are your mother will not wait to uncover the reason for the 10:02 visit before sending you to bed.
