My new cell phone is not all it's cracked up to be.This particular model was to have a superb Mute application. Sean the salesman demonstrated this by calling his own mother. Sean's mom could hear him, but he couldn't hear her. I love advanced technology. I couldn't wait to get home to call my mommy on my new mommy mute application. I could see how my new phone would provide hours of fun.
But as life would have it, I got a defective phone that did just the opposite. My mommy would answer, we'd talk for a minute, and then she'd scream, " I CAN'T HEAR YOU... GET RID OF THAT PHONE... YOU SHOULD DO THIS GIGI! SHOULD, SHOULD, SHOULD!! WHY DIDN'T YOU GET RID OF THAT PHONE!!! YOU SHOULD!!!!
SHOULD all over.
And let me tell you something, my mom is almost as deaf as Beethoven was when he drank his last 5th. Deaf people who can't admit they are deaf become tragically loud.
I put an end to my mom's screaming the only way I knew how.
I sent her a threatening e-mail.
Dear Deaf Mommy-
I wouldn't scream at me if I were you, even if it's because you think I can't hear you. Anything you do or say can be used against you on my blog.
Your favorite first born,
I can't believe all this went down with my mommy. I was doing so well too. I received a stupendous review from the newbie vegan, very talented jewelry designer and blogger Sherry over at http://expoitsofaveganwannabe.com/
I was a guest blogger there too!
And then this really sweet mother and daughter team, (Janet and Rachel), touted me on their very cool sometimes no meat blog http://lifetoldinrecipes.blogspot.com/
Janet and Rachel live on different coasts now, but at one time they cooked and baked a lot together. My mom and I never baked anything together, ever. Suffice it to say we did get sauced and pickled together quite a bit. Janet and Rachel probably never had the phone problems me and my mom have. Maybe Janet will adopt me.
Whatever I do, I cannot bake and eat emotionally over this. Remember my chubster blogs way back when. I've lost 10 pounds since then and now I am at my goal weight. Yay! Look how thin I got. Here's a picture of me carrying a strawberry.
