Off topic story of the day…
My mum is in her mid 60’s and volunteers weekly at a church flea market thingy. Most of the ladies she volunteers with are in their 70-80’s but my mum still has a way with making friends with anyone and everyone no matter the age gap.
To make a long story short one lady she befriended is an 87 years old woman who recently had issues with her TV. So my mum of course volunteered to give her a TV she had hanging out in the basement. That’s my mum, she’ll give you the shirt off her back in a winter storm.
Problem? My mum doesn’t drive so she of course enlists me or my sister to do all her heavy lifting. I didn’t have time to drop the TV off needless to say. One night I had my mum in the car with me after I had taken her to Trader Joe and we passed her friend’s house. I turned to my mother and said “oh crap I forgot we had to drop that TV off to your friend!” she replied it wasn’t a problem at all but I still felt bad and told her, “Gosh what does she do without a TV? No news? What if the zombie plague hits?”
My mom, dead pan, turns to me and says, “What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her!”
I dunno but it cracked me up so hard. A dear little old lady, no TV, no way to watch the news, a possible outbreak of the plague, zombies wandering around her neighborhood and she doesn’t know it’s happening!
I seriously need to get that TV to her.
I’d feel bad if zombies ate her brains because of my negligence.
Anyway….utterly off topic but I hope it made you laugh as much as I did when my mom so seriously turned to me and said that!
Zombies, old ladies, and crazy as hell mothers aside how about a little look at some of the new shades of blush released with the Bobbi Brown Neons and Nudes Spring 2012 Collection.
