I spent a disastrous weekend in Columbia.
- Taking care of my sick dad, which made me feel helpless.
- Getting in a huge fight with my mom just because she is my mom and she is super crazy.
- Also getting in arguments all weekend with my brother because he CANNOT stop talking about Fox News. OBSESSED.
On Saturday I went down to my brother's nursery to buy my grandmother a plant. She wanted a new hanging plant for outside her window at the nursing home. My conversation with my brother went a little something like this...
me: Hey, I need to get a plant for Grandmom.
brother: So I saw something on Fox News just now that said prison inmates make bonuses and the prison guards don't.
me: I just need a plant. Which one should I take?
brother: I mean, can you believe that crap? This world is going to shit
me: I don't care I don't care! Which hanging plant will do the best in full sun?
brother: Why don't you give a crap?
me: Because maybe the prison guards don't deserve a bonus. How the hell should I know?
brother: You would say that. Such crap. F-ing liberals.
me: Please. I am begging you. Will this plant work?
brother: From now on (as if he doesn't already do this) every time I talk to you I am going to bring up an issue for us to discuss. Just one.
me: (counting to 10) I am getting this plant and if it dies I will make sure to tell Gradmom to thank the prison system and those stupid liberals
I ended up buying her a hummingbird feeder instead.
