Strangers Say the Darndest Things

“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.
