The not so fun Greek mother
“Most of my friends, even guy friends, tell me they love their mother more,” my daughter announced.
” What do you mean, in what way? ” I ask puzzled and sort of pleased.
“Well, they worry more about their mothers, they would be sadder if their mother died, ” she explained.
My son nodding in agreement between bites of short ribs.
” But, we all know Dads are way more fun ! ” she continued with further nodding from my son.
I keep thinking of this conversation, we have lots of conversations that make me think.
They will weep when I die, but in life, they would rather play with Dad.
Now, I will enter Greek mother wallowing, all I want are visits, but will settle for weeping.
