I want to preface this post by reiterating that my mother truly doesn't mean any malicious intent when she says these things. It's almost as if she's thinking aloud.
So, without any further ado, I present to you some interrogatives, advice and observations spoken by my mother over the years.
She's truly one of a kind:
X (identity shall remain anonymous) has been engaged three times and you can't manage to get engaged once.
Just try not to talk so much the next time you're out with a boy.
OR (this one she threw at me years ago as I was getting ready for to meet a boy, who is a FRIEND)
Have you talked to him about marriage yet?
