my mother has a message for dearjanesample

ME: Hi, Mom. What's up?

MOM: So, I've been reading your blog.

ME: Thanks, Mom.

MOM: And you've left the job at the big agency?

ME: What? No, I'm still there.

MOM: I read that you weren't.

ME: Where'd you read that?

MOM: On your blog.

ME: What? Where?

MOM: You said you were happy about leaving the big agency and going to a boutique.

ME: Mom! That wasn't me. That was another blog. You must have pressed the key over one of the blue words that link to Jane Sample.

MOM: You didn't write that?

ME: No, that was Jane.

MOM: Honey, I'm so relieved.

ME: You are, Mom? Why?

MOM: The language she uses is kind of shocking. What would her mother say?

ME: I'll tell her you said that, Mom.

MOM: Tell her language like that is not very becoming.

That is hilarious .. I am laughing so hard that I have tears streaming down my face right now.
Adbroad ... your mother sounds exactly like my mother, who finds my language very unbecoming and unladylike. (yes I actually use language like that in my daily life) which is probably why I have not yet sent her a link to my blog ... she really hates my swearing.

Glad it gave you a good laugh, Jane. Happy for you the Boutique seems to be working out.
