One of the many MANY things I miss about my mom is her sense of humor. She made me laugh.
Her birthday recently passed and I was telling my friend how much I missed laughing with my mom. We could be together doing nothing at all, and find the funniest things on the most normal mundane days.
After I was married and out on my own, we had a standing weekly date for lunch. She would pick me up at work and we looked forward to this time together every week. It was one of the ways we stayed connected. Just us girls.
When I was about 8 months pregnant with my son, I had a voracious love of food in general, but specifically…I craved chicken wings.
Don't judge. I would happily eat platefuls of them much to my husband's shock and fascination. I was never a big eater. I never cleaned my plate.
One day, my mom picked me up and was so excited because she had a new restaurant all picked out. She told me she had heard the chicken wings were really good, and this place was getting rave reviews.
She couldn't remember where she heard about it, but she was convinced I was going to be pleased.
As we began driving, I asked her where it was and she said in her sweet Southern accent...
"It’s somewhere over by the mall and has a really funny name..……they call it Hooters?”
We ended up at the salad bar buffet down the road.
