Today my mother and I ran some errands. We actually spent the entire afternoon going here and there. I’m not a big crowd person, so when I was standing in line at the mall, I started to break out in hives. OK…not really. The crowds weren’t all that bad. I just loathe Christmastime at the mall. Instead of remembering why I celebrate Christmas, I find myself hyperventilating, especially this year, because no presents will be purchased. Anyway…
Mom and I went to ULTA so that I could buy some hair dye and face wash…with a coupon 🙂 Way to be economical! While we were standing in line, she offered to pay and I declined. I said that hair dye and face wash were my presents from my Oma. I chuckled, as did the people in line. My mom got all momma lion on them and snapped, telling them about my latest work debacle.
I honestly didn’t know what was happening. I was having a good time and was a bit humiliated that she told total strangers my personal business. She took their laughter as laughing at me rather than with me and was super-protective. It was a very interesting situation.
Either way, my grey hair has been covered for a few weeks. Mom was mom, and I got a good laugh. Good times…good times.
