Mum: Zipquest. Saturday at 2.
Me: Ahaha. This should be interesting. And why have you become such a daredevil?
Mum: Always have been.
Mum: This is Ace's b-day event and you are going.
Me: I didn't say I wasn't! I'm just nervous!
Mum: It will be fun and liberating.
Me: Is that what we're calling horrifying me these days?
Mum: Loosing you of the bonds of fear.
Me: Sounds like a blast.
Mum: I hope it will be.
Me: And a little bit like it came from a snake handler's pulpit.
Mum: Gotta trust...
Me: Not gonna lie, not very good at that.
Mum: Why you need to go.
Me: Fun for you. Therapy for me?
I'm terrified of heights. My mother is very sympathetic.
Also, she guilt trips me 'cause Ace got nothing for her b-day last year. We were all too occupied with cancer. (Which was Not My Fault. Cancer, not the b-day thing.)
