Worth My Weight


I’ve discovered that my oldest son thinks he’s a comedian…and, that while he knows me, he’s kind of clueless about women. Yesterday, when we were shoe shopping, he got impatient and started pushing me to decide which pair of shoes I wanted.  And, then he actually had the nerve to laugh and say he’d never understand women when my mom the shoe fairy told him you should never rush a woman while she’s shopping or picking shoes.

Then, as we were waiting in line, he saw me looking around at all the shoes and said “You really like this store, don’t you? When I grinned and said I did, he gave this mock, beleaguered sigh and said “I guess that means your going to want to come back here…a lot.” I just laughed and Marty gave this theatrical sigh and said “Goodbye extra money, goodbye new games.” “But Marty, then you’d have a happy mom and a happy mom is worth her weight in gold.” This avaricious gleam showed in his eyes and he thoughtfully stroked his chin. “Not saying anything mom, but how much do you weigh?”

To add insult to injury, as we are leaving the store, I hear Marty telling Joey about all this. Joey’s response…”Well, hahahaha, when we find out what she weighs, we can sell her online.”

I’m raising a bunch of smart asses…good thing I love them but, I think a bop upside each head was justified, don’t you?
