This morning I spoke with my mother, who lives six big states away from me, in Wisconsin, and who will turn 91 next week. She sounded real good. My brother was there to take her shopping. I spoke with him for a few minutes too, and he expressed some trepidation...last week when he took her, she bought a 32 ounce box of Twinkies, a large container of margarita mix, and a bottle of tequila. What? She lives by herself. She rarely drinks alcohol. Tequila! I could hardly believe it; I didn't even think she knew what a margarita was. Wow. The way her mind works right now...just...wow.
This naturally makes my musician husband sing: uh UH uh uh uh uh UH ah...ah UH uh uh UH uh uh...TWINKIES! It's a new song, to the tune of Tequila. It makes me laugh, which is good.
