CHEESE

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.

  1. I love this stuff.

    My grandmother spent most of the eighties telling everyone my cousin Tony was going to become a sturgeon, his patients are forever happy he stayed in medical school and did not swim upstream.

  2. One correction; the show we saw was “We will Rock You”. At least I saw it. Your father didn’t stay, as he can’t stand that kind of music. I will admit that the rest is true.

    1. I am pretty sure you told me Rock of Ages. Either way, not my thing! Dad likes Queen, so I doubt it was We Will Rock You? He has told me many times he liked Queen. He was the first person who told me about Queen. When Metropolis came out, he showed it to me and pointed out the soundtrack by Queen.

      1. It was We Will Rock You and it was about Queen. I kept telling him that he would like it but he didn’t stay anyway. BTW it was a wonderful show…not your typical cruise ship entertainment.
