Me and mom's little 3 dollar a day monetary arrangement has proved interesting for the holidays. My father has been off of work for over a week. If he were to find out my mother is giving me money, he would go bananas. Mom has been making what I call little pay packets and she will drive by and stick it in my mailbox and blow her horn. It never ceases to make me smile. You know? She could come inside and say hello, but she is a woman on a mission.
I asked mom why she doesn't just give me money for a week and stop these daily visits.
"I don't want you to get drunk," she replied.
It's not like I can just save up the money and buy a twelve pack of beer. That's my family, though. There is nothing uncomplicated about my mother.
