Hahahahahahahahahahahaha! I simply adored this entire piece! I could read entries like this the entire day.

I felt as if I was hearing my families idiosyncrasies , especially this part: It was a standing family joke that one of us would be stranded at an airport or rushed to an emergency room, mother chasing after us off in the distance, waving an extra pair of underwear in the air.

Great fun read!

God bless~

Enjoyable family life with all the idiosyncracies that it entails. Great MC interaction with mom around the issue of keys which we can all relate to. Keep up the good work.

Ah,"THE LOOK"! Brings back many stories about my Mom that I had thought were her originations.

Congratulations for your delightful memories!

Wow, this is delightful. I expecially love that part about the "errant ant" not being able to fit between the undergarments. Great job and congratulations on your 1st place EC!

Charming and familiar. My mom grew up in post WWII Germany and is a bit of a hoarder and fellow precautionary. Now that I think about it she was also an adept dispensor of the 'Look'.

Sometimes I'm too quick on the keys-I meant dispenser- and forgot to congratulate you on your first place ribbon!
No more multi-tasking for me.
