Momma: “I was thinking about you. I just wanted to make sure you were doing okay.”
Me: “Thanks. I was planning to call you guys last weekend. But I was so busy and it got late.”
Momma:“That’s okay. I know you’re doing your business. Have you found a new friend yet?”
Me: “A friend?”
Momma:“Yeah. You can’t work all the time…”
Me: “Momma, don’t say ‘friend’ like that.”
Momma: “What should I say?”
Me: “If [my brother] was single, you wouldn’t ask him if he had a ‘friend’. You’d say ‘girlfriend’ or something.”
Momma: “Well I don’t know what to say. Should I say ‘boyfriend’ or ‘girlfriend’?”
Me: “It’s pretty safe to say I won’t be dating any more women at this point. You can say ‘boyfriend’”. *
Momma: “Oh okay.
Momma: “Well have you found a new boyfriend?”
* I may be 40. But I still prefer “boyfriend” over “partner,” “lover,” or “significant other”.
gotta love momma.
Too cute, I guess all Momma’s are the same! Mine still refers to my man as a “room-mate” after almost 27 years, so, with time, mine might come around.
But, you didn’t answer her, got a man yet ?
