Short Circuit Clones

"The Wii won't work." 
                                            
"Hi Mom," I snug the phone closer to my ear, "whatever happened to hello?"

"Oh," she laughs, "Hello. The wii isn't working."

"And you think I can fix it from here?"

"Of course."

"Huh," I smother a laugh, "Is there a disc in the machine?" I ask, then hear Brat giggling in the back ground.  "Um Mom ..."

She cuts me off. "Never mind, it's working now."

"Uh huh, just tell me you love me best and get off the phone."

"I love you best."

"I love you too, but I should have been an only child."

"Kelly Louise ..."

  1. It sounds like you have an interesting relationship with your mom. I sense a lot of warmth beneath the humor.

  7. I tried to make myself an only child. To be fair, brother tried to sneak up on me too many times.

  8. Funny! My sister is the middle born of the 3 of us, and since she was brought home from the hospital she has been mad at them for not being an only child. I think she still likes to pretend she is, until she needs one of us.

    Fun topic. Thanks for sharing :-)
