And my Dad does to. Last night I was talking with my parents about an impending trip we’re planning to the States. Mom had read my post “Farm Boy” and wanted to know why I didn’t think they love me.
It was something like this:
Mom: So I want to know why you don’t think your Father and I love you…
Mom: I read your, your, whatever thing, website…
Me: My blog?
Mom: Blog. Why don’t you think we love you?
Me: Ah, what I said was meant to be positive, I said you like me. Everyone says they love you. I’d rather be liked.
Mom: *silence* (clearly not buying my explanation)
Me: At church there are all kinds of people you “love” but I bet there are only a few that you really “like”. I’d rather be liked.
Mom: Well we like you and we love you.
Me: thanks Mom, I know you do.
So, it’s now official, Mom loves me and my Dad does too. Now I just have to explain to her how to post here on the blog and she can clear all this up herself the next time it happens!
