Moms and New York dont mix...

When we first arrived here, i was going to stay with the Delahunts *Tav's family* and mom was going to stay in our friends appartment in Manhattan. after that she would leave for boston to see her husband *yes, theyre married and theyre 3,000 miles apart..dumb*
I have to say those 3 days she was here were the most stressful days of my life.

For starters, Tav, mom and i went on the subway to get to the appartment in Manhattan. mom puts her purse down on the ground next to her, OPEN for the world to see. Tavs like "she really shouldnt do that!" and im like..i know..and i stared at her hoping shed look it my direction so i could say something.

Just then, 2 guys who were on crack, literally, yellow eyes and everything, got on the train. one guy was high as a kite, sweating and stuff and the other guy was sitting down menacingly. So of course, mom decides to talk with them in one of those "hi heres my life story" types of conversations.
"oh yeah im from san diego this is my second time here, so are you a native? yes thats my daughter over there and her boyfriend he lives in staten island, wow things are so different here compared to california!"

she might as well have said "oh my daughter over there has 220 bucks in her back pocket and im sure you can beat up her boyfriend and steal his wallet so you can get his address and rob his house later. oh and here, take my unguarded purse, you look like you could use another fix of whatever youre on." *rolls eyes*
i just stared at the ground.

Mom also wanted to go to the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir as her last outing *yes, she went to everything ALONE.* she decided to drag tavs mom along with her, although she really didnt want to go she just felt bad that my mom was alone in manhattan. first of all, its an all black church. theyd be the only 2 white people there. second of all, its in a bad neighborhood...with moms habits one can only imagine what could happen. tavs mom knew this and tried to get her not to go but to no avail. They went and enjoyed themselves, although things were a little awkward, but after mom went with mrs. Delahunt on the subway home, mom hopped back on the train BACK TO BROOKLYN ALONE for the second service *slaps forehead* what the hell is she thinking??!

After that she proceeded to call tavs mom 8 times..no joke..8...stating a new rule each time we called. we cant be alone in the house, we cant drive alone, we have to be home by 10:30, i must call every hour and say where i am and where ill be back, tav and i cant stay up late together....

whats odd about that is that none of those rules apply when im at home. in fact i was shocked at how she came up with those! Freaked tavs mom out enough that she almost sent me back to manhattan so she didnt have to deal with the responsibility. luckily we convinced mom that whatever Tavs mom says, goes. So currently im under the delahunt family rules and...the only rule is..there are no rules *evil grin*
mom thinks i checked in a billion times today..MWAHAHAHAHA!!!!
serves her right for trying to harness me in a place where theres just too much fun to be had ;)

thank god shes safe in Boston now. she drives me hella nuts.
