I finally get to use the computer that Mom's been hogging all day. Dad's home, so she has to fix supper. She said she wouldn't clean house today because tomorrow is her birthday, and just like office workers, she plans to take the day off, so she'll clean house then. After that, she's going to make Dad take her out to eat for her birthday.
I don't get it. If she gets kicks from doing all that housework, why doesn't she just go ahead and make supper, too?
I thought she did housework on Mondays so she could have the rest of the week to goof off at her computer. Well, she's mostly at her computer. When she isn't, she's reading or scribbling in a notebook while asking folks questions on the phone.
It's crazy. On her so-called working days, she even admits to sitting around all day. But then she complains about how all that reading and writing makes her back hurt, so she has to go for a walk.
It gets crazier. Now she's in this group called TAB--Three Active Brains. Active? HA! They meet at each others' houses so they can concentrate better without noisy people around them. Really? I think it's cuz snacks and drinks cost more at coffee places. It doesn't take any thinking at all to eat cracker sandwiches and cherry tarts. That's work?
They're changing the name to FAB. The letters stand for "Four Active Brains." That's Mom plus three more that are a whole lot like her. "FABulous," they said.
Ha, ha... I'm thinking how fabulously funny tomorrow will be. When switching her housecleaning day, Mom forgot that tomorrow FAB meets at our house.
