Make It Up To Her With Lucy In The Sky

| VA, USA | Parents & Guardians

(On my mom’s birthday, my sister and I spend the day buttering her up with compliments about how ageless and young she is. We also were pretty silly, including sending her a text with the lyrics to the Beatles song ‘Happy Birthday’. In the evening she’s telling my dad about the wonderful day she’s been having.)

Mom: “Oh, and you won’t believe what [my name] texted me at lunch.”

Dad: “What?”

Me: “Think Beatles, Dad.”

Mom: “You know, something appropriate for today?”

Dad: *after pondering for a moment* “’When I Get Older’? ‘When I Turn 64’?”
