Freaky Friday

Mom has been shopping.

It sounds perfectly normal, I know. But this is different. This is weird. Let me show you.

Last night she came home with this pink purse. She didn't need a new purse, but she saw it and fell in love. She said it would "match."  Match what? She isn't pink.


The other night she came home with this stack of stuff. New undies, socks, and a bathrobe. (A couple of weeks ago she brought in a new nightgown.) That's not so strange, she wears stuff like this every day, but she didn't put these things away in her bureau. Hmmm...


When these shoes came home, I started to wonder. These shoes have holes in them. What good are they for? Mom usually wears sneakers. I am not sure if these shoes can even stay on her feets!


This, though, has me worried. Mom says it is a "bathing suit."  Look, I dunno about you, but when I take a bath I don't put stupid stuff ON, and I've seen Mom washing herself in the rainbox and she doesn't have anything on in there either, but what this is for, I have no idea. I've never, ever seen Mom in a "bathing suit" before. (All things considered though, I think the color choice is just fine.)

This doesn't make any sense at all. Inside this funny looking bottle is water. Well, it looks like water, but it isn't. This stuff stinks. Mom was all excited, gushing all over the place. "Oh Millie, doesn't this smell wonderful?"  Oh yeah, sure Mom, I can smell it across the room, you don't need to get any closer with that stuff...

Over the last few weeks she's been bringing other stuff home too. Shirts and pants mostly. Stuff she normally wears in warm weather.

I'm telling you, something freaky is going on...

Ooooh Millie - it looks very like your mom is getting ready for a wedding and a holiday to me.

And I agree with you - that bathing suit is a beauty, isn't it? Very classy colouring.

What lovely things your Mom has been purchasing!
The handbag and the "thing" for bathing are my favourites. Keep us all posted,Millie, about any more purchases, please.

We agree, she is going on a trip. Possibly Mr Karate and Rubylock's wedding.

Georgia and Julie said...

Yup! Something's afoot!!
We suspect a trip will be involved.
We also think it has to do with #1 son and a wedding ;)
Be prepared for more excitement!
