Connected

Even with an ocean separating us, my mom and I are connected. And I’m not talking about being related, but actually linked subconsciously in some disturbing-freaky-OMG way. Case in point:

You know how I had laryngitis last week? And had nothing but a husky squeak for a voice for several days? Well, I got an email from my mother. She’s had laryngitis for the past week. And she sounds like Minnie Mouse when she has it.

I just about peed my pants laughing when I read that email. Just proves that you can separate us by an entire ocean, put is in separate hemispheres, and we’ll still be connected. Comforting, yes, but also disturbing and freaky.

About slmcdanold

I’m learning to laugh at myself on a daily basis. I’m a librarian (cataloger) and I love it. My job involves all things metadata related in any and all formats. I have been known to cause a ruckus when necessary (aka troublesome cataloger) and make no apologies for it. I have a passion for continuing education and teaching. I’m a newbie coder (still learning). I like to cook. I’m a fan of rugby (go Australian Wallabies!) and ice hockey (go Detroit Red Wings!). I’m car-free and bike/walk a lot. I’m learning to love running one stride at a time. I own (and love) a very mouthy cat with a punk attitude and a slightly neurotic rescue mutt.
