J:Sometimes people say one thing but mean something completely different. Sometimes people say something and it means absolutely nothing. I think this is the case with our mom. Recently I was having a conversation with her and I was so confused by what she was saying that I decided to write down her responses to see if I could make any sense out of it. This is how the conversation went:
Me: Mom, would you like to take a walk?
Mom: Well, if we are going for the ham.
Me: I'm not sure about the ham, but I see that E just pulled in from work. Let's go see if she had a busy day as a nurse.
Mom: We should go back in to the rest of the things.
Me: Mom, E is a very busy nurse working her main job as well as running her home health care company
Mom: I never heard anything about a company
Me: Mom, would you ever want to work for her company?
Mom: Don't even talk about it. I'm just waiting for Christmas.
Me: Oddly enough, Christmas is six months from today.
Mom: Are you kidding? What do you think I'm nuts? I just want one egg.
So at the end of the conversation, I'm thinking maybe there's a connection between the ham and the egg. . . I have a call in to Dr. Seuss
