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!
