True Story Tuesday: My Mom Almost Killed Me Once
My Mom almost killed me once.
I am serious.
It was bad.
I was driving.
My mom and my older sister were my passengers.
Here's what happened.
My sister and I were home from college. It was Christmas break and my mom thought it would be fun to take us shopping in the big town of Chattanooga, TN. I cannot remember what enticed me to go. Honestly, it was probably the lure of getting out of town and doing something different.
Anyway, we were barely on our way, not even out of the neighborhood, when my mom asks, "Hey, do either of you have a quarter?"
My sister, grabs her purse, pulls out a quarter and with a "Here ya go" hands it to my mom.
My mom swiftly takes the quarter and hands my sister a 20 dollar bill.
My eyes about popped out of my head. (Remember, I was a poor college student.)
I swerved all over the road. I couldn't contain my surprise and I couldn't control the car.
That was almost the end of everything for us. Thankfully, I pulled myself together.
In desparation, I yelled, "HEY! I have 2 quarters!"

I went "home" to Tennessee for a visit last month. My mom, my sister, and I went out one night. We had the best time. We were headed to dinner to celebrate my sister's birthday. We stopped to do a little shopping first. My mom is smarter in her old age (Happy Birthday, Momma!). She played the "Quarter Game" with us when we were in the store not in the car.
We had an incredible time when I was home.
Here's a picture of us on our girl's night out.
