After telling the story a few posts down about how I am turning into my mother, I spoke to her and she said she had one word for me. I was expecting something important to the practice of motherhood like "patience" or "determination," or some other sage-like word of "persevere" or "create". But no, the word she had for me was so unexpected it struck me silent for the few moments I needed for it to sink in.
The word, was butthole.
Yes, butthole. Meaning I need to check the cat's butthole for worms since she is handling mice...
Not much of a problem since the cat presents her butt for our viewing pleasure on a fairly regular basis., but thanks anyway mom! You are a font of inspiration!
