I have a wonderful mother. She never stops being a mom. For example, below is the ending to a conversation I just had with her.
Me: "Ok, I'll talk to you later."
Mom: "I love you and, please, behave yourself."
Note: Mom tells me to behave myself after 99% of the conversations we have. It is like she knows me.
Me: "HA! You can't make me!"
Mom: "Very true. There are a few states between us now. Ok, then, I suggest you behave."
Me: "Our lives have now come down to suggestions."
Mom: "I highly suggest you behave yourself."
I'll be sure to take that suggestion into consideration.
