My mom and I enjoy doing things together. And one of our favorites is buying groceries. We usually go to the mall together to buy things for the house. We co-dependently need it because I have to practice my driving and she wants going for a walk on a regular basis.
And lately, we are enjoying it more. She’s now a senior citizen but doesn’t really look like one. We get 20% discount on food, a certain % of discount on groceries items. And we do line up on a special designated cashier. Doing groceries are really fun except for the expenses. Ha-ha!
We are actually the same in some things that we take pleasure on. Like eating food in a certain restaurant, we already know what to order and what combination we like best. It is like a mix and match thing. We both like traveling, I have planned a getaway for the two of us last year but it didn’t materialize she has to leave the country for some other reasons, and I was forced to go on the trip alone.
Well, I am not actually a mama’s boy but I am the one in our family who cries whenever she has to leave us. I go on leave for work whenever she returns. And I just miss her when I don’t get to lay in her bed on some days.
The original concept of this post is just about the perks of being a senior citizen. But it all turned out to be about the things that my mom and I enjoy doing together. One of my brothers just recently voiced out this observation through his blog, that I am my mom’s favorite. It wasn’t really a very proud moment but the reassurance that I am being loved was really superb.
I didn’t mean to brag about this but I am just truly happy about it. Just kidding!
