Mother and I were having lunch recently at the City Cafe in Tuscaloosa. I had made the trip to consign some clothes at Deja Vu Consignment. We were sitting, talking over lunch, "Mom, did you see all the clothes I consigned? Cute clothes too. I guess I have gotten to an age where comfort now wins out over cute. I mean, sure...I love a cute outfit as much as anyone...but if it requires ironing, Forget it! And it MUST be comfortable.", I explained.
She agreed with me, "You know my friend Sharon if a fan of elastic."
I have given up high heels. I gave up linen. But Elastic wasit bands? I won't go that far Mom, Not yet. Though there may come a day, it isn
t now. I do agree comfort is where it's at!".
It was about that time I looked up after taking a bite of my creamed corn. And I almost popped off the head of the guy sitting next to my mother with the corn kernel that spewed from my mouth.
"Take for example, that guy....."
Huh? Mom questioned.
"The matadoor, Mom! That just can't be comfortable. There comes a time when one needs to give up a good looking outfit for comfort."
A few hard pats on mom's back dislodged the beef tip.
"Yeeeees", she agreed, " Now, that guy is having a bad day!"
I hope your day is a good one!
Speaking of food....
Be sure to stop by Plates and Places for Foodie Friday. I am sharing my birthday lunch, prepared by my mom. You will not beleive how good it was (Keetha tune in!)
Who would want to go out to celebrate when Momma makes the best food?
Thanks for participating in Thrifty Thursday! I always enjoy seeing the bargains that you have found!
