Married Son: Mum, there’s something I want to say. I’d like to have a talk with you.

Mother: You can say what you like to me, dear. What is it you want to talk about?

Married Son: Well it’s about my wife, Heidi.

Mother: What’s the problem? I’m very open. Does she find me difficult? You can say whatever you like.

Married Son: Yes. She doesn’t like the way you seem to criticize everything she does. It seems like she can’t do anything right.

Mother: I most certainly do not. What on earth gave her that idea?

Married Son: Well she…

Mother: It’s all in her mind. She’s a cot case, imagining stuff like that. She’s living in cuckoo land. I’m very surprised you married her. I thought you had more sense.

Married Son: Well she…

Mother: I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ANYTHING FURTHER ABOUT HER INADEQUACIES. YOU MADE THE BED. YOU LIE IN IT. END OF STORY.

        Of course it varies with particular people, but in my experience it’s usually about two females cat-fighting over one male. I have one sister-in-law who hates my very existence: I don’t have to do anything to merit it. I have a theory that, in this particular case, it’s because she knows I will always be my brother’s sister, though she may not forever be his wife.

    By the way….looking at your illustration above….something about it reminds me of others you’ve done…..you seem to have a thing about old ladies in pink mules…..

    I’ve heard that you’ve made your bed now lie in it before. Awful saying if you ask me. Right there with Finders Keeper, Losers Weepers!

    Ok, Mrs. Bates! Sheesh! I have no relationship with my mother-in-law, so I am immune from these comments, if she ever makes them. However, my mother has made these comments regarding my brother’s ex-wife#1 and ex-wife#2…

You don't have to be a fat cat to chat...
