The Apple...

Doesn't fall far from the tree. Apparently shadiness is in my DNA. It runs in the family.

I was talking to my mom this week when she told me she was thinking about changing jobs. She works as a nurse in Labor & Delivery. She usually works the overnight shift, and she gets tired of it. So I was expecting to hear her say she was thinking about leaving the hospital to work at a clinic. I was wrong. My mom looks at me with a completely straight face and says...

"I think I'm going to start a phone sex company."

Me: "Excuse me?"

Mom: "Yeah. I'm already used to working nights and I figure it would be really easy. I've already thought of a name for the company: Night Nurses."

Me: *absolute and utter silence*

Mom: "I figure all I have to do is say things like 'Oh Baby' and ask questions."

Me: "Ask questions?"

Mom: "Yeah. Like 'do you know what I'm touching right now?' Things like that."

Me: "Please don't ever mention this conversation again. I feel sick to my stomach."

Of course, my mom was just joking. I think.

Oh. My. Mommy, make the naughty nurse stop! Beyond shady.

Night Nurses... I have to give it to your mom, that is clever. Not that I am condoning the idea at all... just giving kudos for the creative name.

Laurie, I think there's probably a support group for this.

It's called the DWMDOJ.

"Daughters Whose Mothers Desire Obscene Jobs"

I'm not exactly sure what to say...in my former life, I was a night nurse.

Hmmm . . . a sweet lady that I know started making off-the-wall statements like that many years ago. Turned out her bipolar disorder was responsible. Keep a close eye on Mom! ;)
