Conversations With my Mother-in-law

Mom:  So what’s new?
Me:  Not much. Oh!  I entered my short story in another contest, so wish me luck!

Mom:  That’s exciting!  Good luck!

Me:  If I happen to win first place I’d have enough money to publish my novel!

Mom:  (smiles and nods)

Me:  OR…buy a LOT of booze. I haven’t decided yet. 

Mom:  (blank stare)

Either A. She didn’t think I was funny, or B. She was planning an intervention. 

I’m not sure…

  1. Good luck with the short story contest! Maybe if you’re really lucky you could publish your novel AND buy a lot of booze …or at least some booze. You gotta celebrate, right?


  2. From your Mother-in-Law:
    You are a funny, quick witted and a great writer. I know that if you keep trying someday you’ll get published and hopefully be able to buy a NEW
    truck full of booze.


    • Oh thank God it wasn’t an intervention you were planning. I mean, you’d throw a great intervention and all, I’m just not really quite there yet. Thank you for the kind words. You made my day. ❤
