My mother at age 19, as Jolly in J.B.
So today my mom comes up to me and says, “Now don’t get alarmed. I might have taken my pills twice this morning, so if I pass out –”
“Call 9-1-1? Yeah, totally wouldn’t hesitate to call 9-1-1. You don’t have to worry there.”
“Well of course, but just be sure to tell the paramedics –”
“That my mom popped too many pills today?”
“Don’t say that. Geez. I took too many blood pressure pills, that’s all.”
“Stop looking at me like that. I don’t think I did, but I’m not sure. But I don’t think I did. But just in case.”
And now I know from which parent I inherited the Absent-Minded gene.
And no, thank goodness, she did not pass out.
I love you Mama. Happy Birthday!! (In two days.)
