Ah, the Holidays

The alarm goes off and I stumble to the bathroom. Upon exiting the bathroom, my mother corners me. "You're awake!" she said delightedly. "Why are you up so early?"

"I had to take my anti-baby pill." I told her, groggily, and made a beeline to the kitchen to start making coffee. Once she starts talking to me it's a lost cause. Going back to bed is not an option.

"Anti-baby pill?" she frowned and followed me to the kitchen.

"Uh huh. Coffee? Where is it?" At this point I think I was about 30 seconds away from begging, on my knees.

"Oh," she said and handed me the blessed tin, "No grandchildren?"

"Not this month at least."

And with that, everyone, I wish you a very Happy Holiday Season and few awkward conversations with your family!
