Thanks for joining me this week, for the week of Getting MORE Getting More Tale. I hope you enjoyed all five musical stories!
I love my mom. I have the best mom in the world! That’s why I want to share these memorable mom quotes. Let’s hear it for my mom!
1. One day we were at the cottage playing cards. Someone cut a stinky fart. My sister demanded to know who the cuplrit was. “Who cut the cheese??” she asked.
“What cheese?” answered my mom.
2. Remember “More Than Words”? Extreme really broke into the mainstream with the standard-setting acoustic ballad. This is the one, more than any other acoustic ballad, that conjures the most images. My mom liked the song. She asked my sister and I who sang it.
“Extreme!” we answered simultaneously.
“Who’s Nick Streen?” she asked back.
3. My mom and dad just got back from a cruise. They excitedly told me about the different activities I would enjoy. Rock climbing, bumper cars, and lobster every night if I wanted it. “And they have special shows,” added my mom. “Like Rock of Ages.”
Doing my best to exaggerate the degree to which I was offended by this suggestion, I slowly turned my head to stare, and removed my glasses raising the eyebrows just so.
My mom caught my drift, but not why.
“Do you not know what Rock of Ages is?”
I answered matter-of-factly, “Yes I do, that’s not my point!”
“But it’s about rock!” clarified my mom.
My mother-in-law, who was also visiting at the time, knew what I was getting at.
“Your son is a music snob,” she said. She turned towards me and quickly amended, “Or a music aficionado if you prefer.” I smiled at her and laughed. That was it exactly.
Thanks for being such a good sport mom! Glad you enjoyed the trip.
