A Passage Of Arms [May. 7th, 2019|07:49 pm]
Tony Grist
The sitting room has lacked a door for decades. We decided it could do with one and engaged Baw to do the work. He was here yesterday and the noise and business were getting on my mother's nerves.

My Mother: What is he doing?

Me:: He's putting a door on.

My Mother: (in her daughter of the big house voice) Your father took that door off.

Me: (to whom that voice is a red rag to a bull) And I'm putting it back.

My Mother: (still on the high horse) Actually you don't have the right....

Me: (still seeing red) So take it off again...

My Mother (Retreating in some confusion but grudgingly) No, no, do what you want...

No matter how elderly, a mother can always irritate her offspring.(and vice-versa) I suppose it is her small way of still being the lady of the house.

We used to have these spats quite often, but now they're very rare.

I understand.
I'd be tempted to say :
Father doesn't live here anymore..

the weather channel used to have red flag days
it looks like its bee replaced by court.tv
its useless.

annoying as it is she does notice the noise.
that is good.

you handled it well

I could wish I didn't just snap back. Father has been gone now for 15 years or more. As you say, his rules no longer apply.
