PHEW! My mother just left for home after a FANTASTIC visit with me and Hubby.
It was 4 days of mother daughter hijinks with a crazed Hubby following after us with band aids and fire extinguishers… I swear you set a room on fire once during a past visit and suddenly you’re both a “hazard”.
Well we had a great time and since I have to leave for a kickball game in 15 minutes I’m just going to give you one story from the 4 days of sock throwing, hammer malfunctioning, so that’s what our fire alarm sounds like, and someone drank all our wine Awesomeness.
On mom’s second day of visiting I decided to take her on a wine tasting. You gotta love Portland for having over 100 wineries in a 30 mile radius. Hubby decided not to come as mom had checked her emails on his laptop and now it was beeping and flashing a mysterious blue light every 30 seconds.
I was being a very good daughter/designated driver during our wine trip and let mom have pretty much all of the tastings, while I would take a sip here and there. At winery #5, our last tasting of the day, the owner offered us a taste from a bottle that goes for $120 retail.
We were very excited… maybe too excited.
Me: Okay that smell is amazing, I’m can’t wait to taste it!
*GULP* ( I was gonna type *sip* but I was pretty sure some of my regular readers would have called BS)
Me: hhmmm… I kinda thought the taste would grab me by the tongue.
Mom: You thought it would take you back in time?!?
Me: What!?! No I said tongue, TONGUE… Okay we’ve had enough.
Mom: Hey! I’m not the one who thinks wine will cause me to time travel! And honey a tongue wont help you either… but a Tardis would.
Me: MOTHER! I have NEVER been so proud of you, as I am at this very moment!!
Wine Owner: What’s a Tardis?
Me: Okay I take it back, NOW I’ve never been so proud of you.
