Sorry Mom But You Don’t Understand…

If you are a frequent reader of the blog you know that my mom is one of the funniest people I have ever been around and frankly is hysterical! Well, a few months ago she was no different. As I was getting ready to go out to dinner with my parents and sister she saw what I was wearing and was appalled. I was wearing a Baylor S3 Board shirt, dress shoes, leather belt, and designer jeans. You are probably asking, what is wrong with the outfit and why does your mom have an issue?

The part that I left out was that the jeans were ripped. In fact, they were ripped at the knee, the pocket, and a few other spots. No huge rips but they were ripped. Here are a few of my Mom’s comments:

  • “Merrill, you look ridiculous!”
  • “You can’t possibly leave this house in that outfit!”
  • “Throw those jeans away!”

And my personal favorite:

  • “Joel, Joel!” At the top of her lungs, “do you see what your crazy son is wearing?!?”

After she caught her breathe I said, “Mom, you don’t understand. I bought these jeans this way, they are in style, and frankly I like them.” The conversation then turned into a different angle which was, “I hope you didn’t pay a lot of money for ripped jeans.” My response was, “Mom, the jeans are more expensive because of the rips.”

It was funny, cute, and a classic exchange!

  • So today I ask you to finish this sentence, “Sorry Mom, but you don’t understand__________________.”

Time to fill in the blank.

I look forward to reading your comments.
