A Mildly Inappropriate Conversation with My Mother

Mom: I just found your old bank checks that you lost a few months ago.

Me: Seriously?! Where??

Mom: In a laundry hamper in the upstairs hall closet.

Me: Obviously.

Mom: Yeah, that makes total sense, right? I’m actually finding a lot of interesting things!

Me: Whatever it is, I’m holding it for a friend.

Mom: The packet of ribbed condoms, too? Darn, I was gonna take those! Hahaha

Me: Ew! What?!?!

Mom: They were inside a big winter glove. Probably a gag gift, right?

Me: Well, at least we know the gloves are having safe sex.

Mom: Hahaha – The poor thing doesn’t have a partner, though!

Me: Aw, so lonely! And yes, my friend gave them out as a gag gift a few years ago. I completely forgot about those.

Mom: Nice!This is the fun part about my kids moving away. I get to go through all their sh-t… Good God, how many hats did you knit?!

Me: They kept me from needing the condoms.

    Oh…this is inappropriate? It sounds like the way my daughter and I talk all the time! 🙂

    Lovely to have that kind of relationship with your mum–treasure it.

    Last line … perfect.

    Hahaha, knitting? I’m on it! Is 10 too early to get her started? Sounds like your mom sees right through your BS. I like her already.

  4. Sounds like you have a wonderful relationship with your mom!

    Hahaha! Love the blog! Hope all is well :). / Tina

  6. Ha! Love this conversation — and the fact that the glove was filled with…well…”gloves”!

    LOVE, love, love the conversations you have with your mom! Like Mike in Friends says, it’s so wonderfully weird 🙂

    This reminds me of a conversation with my mom in Disney World 2 months after I got divorced. She saw an Eeyore nightshirt and she says, “Kat! Look how cute that is! You should get it!” I say, “Mom, if I start wearing stuff like that I’m really never having sex again.” [pause] Mom responds, “Good point.” And we retreated from the sexless nightshirt!

    OMG…hilarious! Your mom sounds like a hoot! Reminds me this weekend my mom was completely grossing me OUT. She was telling me about a free book she downloaded on her kindle that she didn’t know was “porn” (her words), and when she started reading it she was like, hmmm, *looking over at her sleeping husband thinking*, “hey, you busy?” AAAAACKKK, erase erase, erase!!!! I can’t deal with her talking about stuff like that to me. The visuals are too disturbing. I lost brain cells, I know it.

    Ha! As the saying goes – No glove no love!

    I’m so glad I don’t discuss sex with my mom and dad. Just. No.

    I really don’t want to know what they are up to.

    hahaha funny…
    I could never throw in “condoms” in a conversation with my mom though.. she’s such a conservative gal… not from the 50’s but the XV century…honestly..she still believes in sex after marriage only…even if you’re 40…woman please!
    anyway..cool post!

    My parents are hard core Mormons, so this is NOT a conversation they would ever have with me…. it would go more along the lines of;
    Mom: ARE YOU PREGNANT?! DO NOT come home if you’re pregnant!
    Dad: …Wait… WHAT? Who’s having sex with you?!
    ME: … you found condoms? -!! I haven’t had sex in like, FOREVER!
    Mom: Yep. She’s pregnant. Way to ruin your life… just give up on your dreams and let your soul die before you’re 40.
    Me: No mom, I’m not pregnant… I haven’t even had a date in over a year… because I knit. And settle down dad, nobody’s having sex with me that I’m aware of.
    Mom: So if you’re not pregnant, who’s condoms are these?
    Me: You have six other children, so apparently they aren’t yours…..
    Dad: Who has six children? Who’s having sex?-! When did you start knitting?
    Me: OTHER children, dad. You have seven total, counting me, and I don’t actually knit.
    Mom: So why would you need condoms?
    Dad: You’re knitting condoms?

    Heaven forbid we ever have a normal conversation regarding sex – Hug your mom; she deserves a medal for her response. 😉
