Oh I Geddarountuit

I swear, Randy, you are the laziest man I ever seen. You sit there on the hot porch and you won’t even bother to fan yourself.

Why I should fan myself, Mama, when I got this here cold beer you brung me? And thanks, by the way. If you happen past the kitchen, maybe get me another?

If I wasn’t sure you were my son I’d wonder where you got such a powerful ease.

Mama, one of us working so hard should please the Lord enough to smile.

Why don’t you at least fix up that fan like you promise?

  1. Wonderful snapshot of a not-unusual relationship. The son is a user, the mother an enabler. My response would have been, “Get up, get cleaned up, go find a job. And get your own beer somewhere else. I’m not paying for it anymore.”

    I see this situation way too often in my counseling office. Believe me, if you’re in it, it’s not a bit funny.

Whatever.
