Thanks For Nothing

My 84 year old mother, who weighs about 90 pounds soaking wet, told me during our phone conversation today that I needed to lose weight. Something about beer and calories, long commutes, chips and dip, no exercise, blah blah blah blah.

I didn't think that was very nice. So I'm making her assemble some new exercise equipment when it arrives on Tuesday. That will teach her. I hope she doesn't have a hard time getting that treadmill and elliptical machine down to the basement. I don't want to see any scratches on the wall or on the machines. Tell me I need to lose weight.... Hmmph.

Yeah, ok, but is her motorcycle BIGGER than yours??

Hey Solo! No, but actually I think her turbo red walker with the wheels and the built in seat goes faster than my bike.

I bet for sure she could do it....especially with the help of that turbo red walker!

Mother's are always giving those "loving" messages aren't they?
But:
Beer makes you fat??
Hmmm & I was wondering what i was doing wrong.

The sheer nerve of that woman! Hope she has the good sense to apologise with a packet of chocolate biscuits?

My dear old ma once gave me a tube of spot cream for my birthday - bless her, eh?
