Today I am musing over "what takes your
peeps attention away from YOU". By far my Mom's 'crafty nature' is something I have to tolerate on a daily basis - she is always making 'something' and goes through these regular bouts of being self absorbed in what ever current thing has captured her imagination.
Yesterday I sat starring her non stop for a good fifteen minutes before she finally stopped painting and asked me what I wanted. "I want attention, cookies, walkies, car ride, a trip to the pet store - you know - the general stuff I love" and you know what she said ................
"How about a nice warm bath" WHAT THE DOG!!!!! It is bad enough when she says "not now Reilly - I am busy Reilly or later Reilly" but what kind of inhuman thing is THAT to say!!!! "Do I want a nice warm bath!!!!!!!!!!!"
Needless to say I spent the next fifteen minutes hiding out under the kitchen table and glaring YES glaring at her from a safe distance. A bath indeed.....ba humbug!
So the question of the day is "what takes your peeps minds off of giving you 100% of their attention?"
