It's the first of the month!

For as long as I can remember my mom has {annoyingly} always made it a point to wish me a Happy 1st of every month (ie Happy February 1st!!!).  It was always in person that she'd do this... until I got a bit older.  It became a game once I got older - I started playing along and trying to beat her to it.  It branched into sending emails (because I have a big girl job and all), phone calls, in person banter... however we could get it out to each other.

For the last... several months... I've been dominating my mother (I really hope that line doesn't get a lot of Google hits)!  Being that I have a big girl job, I'm up early.  I can send that email, I can make the phone call... I can cover my ass before she is even thinking about waking up for the day.  I'm awesomesauce - that's why.

Today though... I'll be damned if this woman wasn't laying in bed awake when I went upstairs to grab my lunch... she yells out "Angela?"  I say "Yeah", not even remotely aware of the date at this point... "Happy February 1st!"

Shit.

"Ugh, Happy February 1st" I say, and just walk away with my held hanging in shame.

Its kind of a fun game now that I'm older.  I look forward to continuing this tradition when I'm not living with her anymore... it'll be interesting.
