Love is...

A busy life is marked by moments suspended in time with pure joy.



I love going to Daughter's Musical Theatre's class recital night.

* * * * *

There's a lot more to this girl than stage performances.

She's a funny girl in a dead pan kind of way.

Two days ago she tells me, "Mom, can we get your name off my bank account."

"I didn't know my name was on it."

"I started the account when I was 16 and you had to sign in as a joint account holder."

"Oh. Sure, but what difference does it make? It's not like I'm going to take your money."

"Yeah. But I finally went through my first box of checks. The ones with only my name on them. Apparently when I ordered a new box of checks five years later your name came up."

She waves the box in my face and increases the volume of her voice.

"Look, just what I need. Now I have a whole box of lesbian couple checks."

ROFLMAO!!!

When I stop laughing at the "lesbian couple checks," I'll catch my breath and tell you how beautiful and talented your daughter is.

Because she is.

Now I'm going to go kill the evil person who is making cinnamon toast in my office...

lisleman said...

that would not have popped into my head - funny.
Tell her that you are her business partner and you are equal owners.

anymommy said...

Ha! Tell her they could be really useful if a guy starts pushing unwanted attention.

Debbie said...

Onedia said...

That is just so beautifully funny! I feel a bit bad that my name is still on one of my daughter's (25 and married 6 years) accounts....
