Why I Am The Way I Am (Subtitle: Possible TMI)
So, I have a friend who started as a consultant for Pleasure Parties. Her first party is Saturday and I am going along with a good friend ~ you know, for moral support. I talk to my mom today and here's how our conversation goes:

Me: I'm going to a party on Saturday.

Mom: Will there be wine? (I've been known to call Mom after I've had one too many glasses)

Me: It's not that kind of party, Mom. It's a Pleasure Party.

Mom: Lingerie? Lotions? Erotic sex toys?

Me: Yah, the sex toys one.

Mom: Why didn't you invite me?

Me: Wanna come?

Mom: Gotta work. Get me a catalog.

Me: Why do you need a catalog? J (her boyfriend) is rechargable.

Mom: To hell with J. Get me a catalog. I can charge my own damn batteries.

Ok ~ so now what do I say when people tell me I'm just like my mother?

    LOL! I would say, "thank you". Your mom sounds like she's got it goin' on!

    Wow, that would never happen with me and my mom LOL. I don't think she even knows they have parties like that....thank God!

    Ha ha!!! That's funny. Something my mom and I would say. except i'd say ewww cause then I'd have visions of my parenta having sex.

    Jen ~ I think my mom's pretty incredible. I had to sit her down and have "the talk" with her when she started dating after my dad died. Understand ~ this is the woman who couldn't have "the talk" with me. I got a book that explained every detail.

    Stacy ~ It's amazing the things I can talk to my mom about now. She's a pretty fun lady.

    Isabel ~ My room was directly beneath my parents' room when I was growin up. And they left the vents open. Need I say more?

    Say "Thank you, I know I'm wonderful."

    You are one lucky little chickadee...most women would love to have a relationship like that with their Moms. Good on ya!

  • At 8:06 AM, Blogger Devonna

    Ames ~ I might just have to do that.

    Rosie ~ I have to agree. My mom's pretty cool. I'll have to do a few "Adventures with Mom" posts ~ she's just a hoot.

  • At 9:05 AM, Blogger Kristie (J)

    Wow - to have a chat with your mom about something like that is so cool!!! I have troubles talking like that with myself :)

    Kristie ~ It's still amazing to me that this is the woman who couldn't have "the talk" with me. Times have definitely changed.

  • At 12:41 PM, Blogger Lori

    LOL - my mom would think it was great that I was going to one, but would never go to one herself!

    Your mom is pretty cool, Devonna!

  • At 2:20 PM, Blogger Holly

    My mom would prolly be interested in a catalog, too, but we have an unspoken (well, sometimes spoken, too) agreement not to discuss certain things. LOL This would be one. I.Don't.Want.To.Know. *shudder*

    Too funny!

  • At 3:52 PM, Blogger Devonna

    Lori ~ I think so. Seems I learn more about her all the time. This conversation, for example.

    Holly ~ During this entire conversation I kept saying to myself "This is my Mother".

  • At 10:06 PM, Blogger Colleen Gleason

    You say "thank you."

    Your mom is cool.

  • At 10:08 PM, Blogger Devonna

    Colleen ~ I have to say she is. I think she's pretty amazing.

  • At 2:43 AM, Blogger CindyS

    You definitely have a cool relationship with your mom. There's no way in hell I would even bring something like that up to my mom! Course, she has yelled out when I have kissed Bob 'I'm in the room!!'. Uh, I just kissed him. No frenching. Just a kiss. Sheesh ;)


  • At 8:06 AM, Blogger Devonna

    Cindy ~ She's a fun lady. As I've grown older I've gotten to be more like her. Case in point ~ her laugh used to embarass me. Literally. I'd hide when we were out and she'd. Now, I have her laugh. And it's kiddo's turn to just shake her head. Especially when Mom and I are out together.

  • At 1:32 PM, Blogger Teena

    Your mom sounds cool! Ha!

  • At 4:03 PM, Blogger Devonna

    Teena ~ Yah, I think I'll keep her. I really am going to get her a catalog. I'm sure she was teasing, but I'm going to get it for her. What'd be funny is if I could get it mailed to her. She still lives in the (too) small town I grew up in. I'd love to see the look on the mail lady's face when the catalog came through. Hmm...something to think about.

  • At 7:00 AM, Blogger Kookie

    Love your mom, Dev! (o:

  • At 3:35 PM, Blogger Dylan

    LOL, how cute! I love your Mom! ;) So how was the party? hehe.

  • At 3:46 PM, Blogger Devonna

    Kookie ~ Me too :-)

    Dylan ~ The party was okay. A lot of the stuff there was more for couples...and I'm not one. So, other than my friends thinking they'd get me a little tipsy....I didn't order anything, but I did ask them to send my mom a catalog. hehe
