Anyway, she was really excited when I answered the phone. And we spent the first few minutes exchanging the customary pleasantries- what are you doing? and how was your date night?- but, I could tell there was something much more important weighing on her mind, and this is how our conversation went...
mom: How was your date night?
me: It was fine. We went to the melting pot.
mom: And the movie? Was it good?
me: Well the glasses hurt my nose, so I had to hold them up the whole time, but it was pretty good. Worth seeing.
mom: Yeah well our movie wasn't good and it made me carsick so I had to spend half the time with my eyes closed.
me: Really? That sucks.
mom: But it's ok because Dad took me to APPLEBEES after (and by this time she's bursting with excitement over her dinner at Applebees).
SIDENOTE: The last time I went to Applebees, not only was my sandwich disgusting but our waiter talked to us in a voice so creepy I'm pretty sure he belonged on the sex offender registry. Not to be crude but that is my experience with that place.
mom: And not only did we get to eat there, but I also got to take jello shots!!!!
Holy weirdness batman...I'm not sure what bothers me more- the fact that my 60-something mother was taking jello shots BY HERSELF at a restaurant or the fact that that restaurant was Applebess!
