My quarterly conversation with my mother occurred yesterday and for a change I left it feeling good. She tried her usual negativity thing and I diverted her away from it. Then she started in on something again, then said, "let me stop I'm trying to be a good christian". I laughed and said, "But isn't being judgmental the MOST christian thing ever?" She got quiet, said she her phone was dying and ended the call. I am now officially adding snark into all our conversations since it derailed her from all the negative BS I usually have to hear. YAH ME!
After my mother pissed me off and I quit talking to her I discovered the bonus of not having to listen to her bitch about everything and everybody under the damn sun. I am not even a little sad I quit talking to her. That's a whole 'nother issue though that had nothing to do with religion.
Congrats, I had to emigrate to prevent the risk of annoying behavior of my family. I know it is not such a real expectation of my family, because they don't care, but I'm still part of that family, so I know they disaprove . They don't critisize met too loudly .
I was actually surprised by that ending....it makes me realize I have been mostly lucky with any xstains I have met...almost every one I have met would laugh...I used to hear 'God has a sense of humor, too.'....to which I would always reply,'he has to, if he made a punk like me.'....hehe
