In honor of Kathy Corbett’s 55th birthday today, I want to share some “momisms” that she’s emailed me throughout this year.
“I never go out expecting to have chemistry with a man, I really go out to have fun. When it happens I am totally caught off guard. I really go out to hear a good band.”
“Please be careful if you scuba and no need to go deep, 25 to 30 ft is deep enough and ascend very, very slowly so you don’t get the "bends". There was a show on TV about it last night and someone
got narcosis from ascending too quickly. Have fun baby and I miss you very much.”
“I plan on rollerblading daily come spring. When you visit this summer we will be blading. I quit smoking at 50 and plan
on getting in the best shape ever at 55.”
Like most teenagers, I once rolled my eyes at these words of wisdom. As I’ve grown older, I’ve not only learned to appreciate the “momisms,” I can’t imagine life without them. Stayed tuned for more gems come Mother’s Day…
In the meantime, I just want to say that I love you, Momma! And I hope I look half as good as you when I’m 55. May your 55th be your best year yet.
