Remember “Take your daughter to work day?”
Today is “Take your mother to work day” for me. Which is an interesting experience, to say the least. Introduced my coworkers to my mother and of course, she behaves herself. Then, back in the office, strange words start to issue forth from my mouth.
“No, you can’t touch that.”
“Put that back, please.”
“Okay, I’ll take you to the restroom.”
“Please don’t touch that.”
“No, it’s not lunchtime yet.”
Right now she’s sitting in my reception area and playing secretary and surfing the net. It’s interesting because I have memories of me going to her job during school holidays. Mainly I remember sitting and doing homework, or reading.
But of course, being the perfect child–I never touched anything.
