Swine Flu!

I love my mother, but sometimes because of her my brother and I don't take things seriously. Such as swine flu. We both agree, it is terrible. People are dying. That is bad.
However, because of our mother, and how very seriously she takes these things, my brother and I have taken to joking around about it. Bea Arthur? Killed by swine flu. Swine flu is going to come and kill us all. We're simply all going to die. Then we start to laugh after doing a lot of "da da duuuuummmmm"s.
We're not bad people, honestly. And we know this isn't funny, but damn. There is literally nothing we can do about a pandemic. We can try to make sure we won't get it. Everything else is out of our hands, so we might as well laugh.


  1. if you can't find the ridiculous in the situation, you're probably not trying hard enough.

  2. Damn right PF! Only rule in life, laugh don't cry!

    This is the same way I handle my Mother... as a kid, any discussion we had ended up with her screaming. This is the fault of my older sister who came out of the womb saying 'you're not my boss' and never stopped. When Mom told her she couldn't go somewhere, she called a cab.

    I'm 6 years younger and I have the complete opposite personality. I think my Mom decided from the start that when it came to me, all difference of thought was to be killed immediately :P Now that I'm older (and have a wicked sense of humor) I can tease her constantly about how much of an idiot she is.

    She broke both her wrists a few winters back and realized that if anyone was going to take care of her in her old age, it was going to be me. I think I already signed the power of attorney :P
