Conversation With M

M- Hey mom, I am filling out my sports physical info for volleyball and they want to know if I get a concussion is there a time when you do not want to be contacted? Cuz, you know if your kid gets a head injury you might not want to be disturbed between say 3-6pm.

Me- Actually, I’d prefer not to be contacted at all. There has to be an alternative number they can call.

M- Social Services?

M- Ok, what is your relationship to the student?

Me- Mine?

M- Yes, yours.

Me- Well, lets go with mo…

M- Abusive?

Me- Just thinking here. In order to keep me out of prison, perhaps it would be better if I filled out the form.

M- Perhaps.

  1. Ooooo! The snark is strong in this one. Perhaps I should have a DNA sample taken just to make sure M is not a long lost child of mine.

  2. Reminds me of conversations with my daughter.

    Me: I don’t know where you got to be such a smart-alec. No one else in this family is like that.

    Her: o.O

  3. My younger daughter has been called snarky more that once. Are they related?

  4. I love the snark. I wish my daughter was snarky. Instead, she’s just sassy!

    But I am sooooo looking forward to the day when I can be that embarrassing parent to a high schooler.

  5. It would be interesting to trace the linage of liberty loving and smart assery. Seems my family is much like that. Although I must admit that it takes a bit longer to develop the liberty loving part. The other comes naturally and routinely at a much younger age!

  6. I love M. All of my kiddos are just as sassy (or snarky, depends on the day). In fact, my oldest, Digger, took a look at my sunburn and said, “hey Mom, you know what goes good with white people?” *blink, blink* “Sunscreen!”

    The little shit. But he was right, I should have used it instead of depending on my Mexican side to help me out a little bit. I swear, the older I get, the whiter I get. I just don’t get it. *shakes head*
