“Have a Happy Mother’s Day!”
I returned her beaming smile.
“…if you are a mother,” she added.
She must have noticed my discomfort.
“and if not, to YOUR mother and all the mother figures in your life!”
Do I really need to deal with this right now? I haven’t even had breakfast yet. I haven’t even read today’s news. Mother’s Day is still a few more days. Argggggggggghhhhhhhh.
“…same to you,” I say, meekly scurrying away as fast as I could.
