Conversation With Mom Part XXXVIIII

My mom and I have been having the exact same conversation for twenty years.

“How are you?”

“Tired.”

“Are you taking vitamins?”

“No. I can’t swallow them. They make me want to puke.”

“Well, you can break them in half.”

These days the words are the same, but the inflection has reached a higher level of hysteria.

“How are you?”

“Tired.”

“Are you taking vitamins?”

“No. I told you already. I CAN’T SWALLOW THEM. VITAMINS MAKE ME WANT TO PUKE!!!”

“WELL, YOU CAN BREAK THEM IN HALF!!!”

I know my mom loves me and only wants me to feel healthy. And so, I’m vowed to avoid the Vitamin Conversation.

Next time she asks if I’m taking vitamins, I will respond with one of the followings:

1) “No, but I plan to see a nutritionist to take care of my anoemia.”
2) “No, but I appreciate that you care about me so much.”
3) “No, but I just bought a vitamins crusher…vitamins no longer have a hold over my gag reflex.”

Just for today, I love my mom.
