I have a cool mom (not a regular mom).
I’m 43 and I still get nervous when I tell my parents things like “I bought a new car.”
I sent my mom a text message and pic of me with my new car yesterday morning, but hadn’t heard anything back all day. So I called her.
Cb: Hey, didn’t you see my iMessage?
Mom: no, I had the carpets cleaned and haven’t been home
Cb: well I sent you a pic
Mom: hold on, let me check… What is that?
Cb: I may or may not have bought a new car…..
Mom: is that a MINI? Oh, I’m so GLAD!!
Cb: um, you’re glad?
Mom: you LOVED your MINIs! I remember you talking about them when we were at the farmers market before they even came out.
Cb: you do?
Mom: oh sure. They’re cool little cars! I always liked your MINI and missed it when you got rid of it.
Cb: but don’t think maybe it was a bit frivolous to buy it? The Subaru was perfectly adequate…
Mom: why not? You can afford it and you like them. So why not have something you enjoy?
Cb: yeah, I suppose
Mom: it even the same colors as your first one! I can’t wait to go for a ride in it
Then I told her about all the features. She’s so excited for me and glad I went back to having one.
I feel better about my purchase now.
P.S. for names I’m thinking “Caruthers” or “Vince”….
