“Don’t leave all that orange drink where dad can see it!” Mom said forbiddingly this morning standing at my front door. “Hide six in your cabinets.”
“Why?” I asked, confused.
It was just 12 cans of Wal-Mart early rise orange drink. Innocuous at best. It is sugar free, no caffeine, and has lots of vitamin C.
“Your father will act funny about it,” mom said assuredly. “I may get in trouble for you having so much at one time.”
I scoffed. Surely dad wouldn’t say something about that! I had to eat my own words, though.
“What are you doing with all that orange drink?” dad asked as he stood in my kitchen this morning after stopping by to see if I shaved and got myself cleaned up.
“Mom always buys them for me,” I replied, wary of what was about to unfold.
“Too many at one time,” he said gruffly. “I will talk to your mother. You will drink them all at one time.”
LOL!!! Mom was right. I will listen to her from now on. I probably caused her more problems than needed. I am sure I will get a call from her this afternoon.
