Mac, the Holy One

Yesterday, Easter Sunday mind you, I left the house to return some videos. Mac decided to come along so it was a last minute "hurry up and wait" on him to get himself "beautiful" as well as his iPod, his phone, his head phones, his wallet, and his car keys (I ask you- why does he need all this shit to go 4 blocks? And he wasn't driving. There's no money in his wallet!).

Half way to the video store I holler, "Jesus H. Christ. We're going to the video store to return the videos and guess what I forgot!?!" And I pound the steering wheel a few times for good measure, before getting ready to turn around and go back.

Mac says, "I keep telling you, mother, you can just call me Mac. And what do you expect me and my Holy self to do about it?"

I chuckle and say, "Use some of that Godliness to conjure up the DVDs so I don't have to turn around to go back to get 'em."

Without missing a beat, he says, "I can't. It's Easter Sunday and I've been busy; besides, you're an atheist. Can't do shit for ya."

Mac's mom,

That's what happens when you're an atheist. Can't even get respect from your own son, His Holiness. Too funny.

I think Mac and I would get along famously.....until he one-upped me. Then I'd have to revert to calling him a teenaged goober.

I'm so jealous you're on spring break this week..... Ours is still forever away. Like two whole weeks.

Curley- if I had been thinking quick enough I would to know what his answer was to an atheist being the mother of his Holiness?

Bragger-two weeks away????? that's the latest spring break in history! I'll send you happy spring break thoughts!

Tell His Holiness that his gpaw is proud of his "one-upness." Those moments can be few and far between. I had one of LMAO moments when I read this. Unfortunately, probably at your expense. HA!

Maggie said...

Anna- that he is!

JE- that's okay- he was sure quick on the draw! and it seems he manages to "one up" me more and more- that smartie pants!
