A Conversation With My Mother That Didn’t Actually Take Place But Totally Could Have (With Pictures).

“Hi honey! Dad said the new brick border you guys put in yesterday looks really nice.”

“Hi Momma. Yeah, it looks great, Daddy does good work. My legs are wicked sore though.”

“I bet! He mentioned you were going to go to Lowe’s for flowers?”

“Yeah, a few marigolds for the planters and a Shasta daisy to replace the one that didn’t make the winter. Oh, and I got a Gerber daisy for the other planter. And some other stuff.”

“What do you mean, other stuff?”

“Well, I know I said I wasn’t going to bother, but the tomatoes were right there….”

“Uh-huh, how many did you buy?”

“Oh, just one, but I got some herbs too.”

“What kind?”

“Basil, cilantro, some italian parsley, and mint.”

“Wait. I know why you got the basil, parsley, and cilantro — but what are you going to make with mint?”

“Duh, mom. Mojitos.”

“That’s my girl.”
