Speechless wednesday

Sunday afternoon as we were saying goodbye:

Mother: My sweet adorable daughter child of mine, pain in the arse, why don't you come over on Wed and bring the kids so we can have dinner together.

Me: Okay that sounds great.

Wed afternoon:

Oh I need to call mom and see what kind of yumminess we are having for dinner.

Me: Hi mommy, how are you?? I was just wondering what we are having for dinner tonight??

Mom: Hi, I am fine. What you mean we?? Your father and I are having shark that his friend gave to him.

Me: SHARK??? That sounds horrible, no offense. I thought it was illegal to catch and cook shark. Who eats shark anyways??

Mom: What is your problem? You always call to criticize. Its not you that is eating.

Me: MOm I am not criticizing. You invited me for dinner today remember?? and besides I was just stating I had no clue anyone eats shark. Don't worry we will do dinner another night, I will just give the kids pizza or something tonight. Enjoy your shark.

Mom: Young lady I am so sick and tired blah blah blah blah, attitude, blah blah blah, you could very well cook but yet I have to cook for you guys after we been working 598 hrs and dealing with blah blah blah blah blah. I am not going to put it up with this anymore, blah blah blah, when you are going to grow up, blah blah blah.

and this is how I have come to the conclusion that my insanity is 99% nurture and 1% nature ;)

Love A

I eat them every New Year. (But that's just because shark fins are considered a delicacy by the Chinese community.)

A delicacy?? Oh my I had no idea. Is it good or one of those things that you just scarf down and hope you didn't taste it going down??
