When searching for an apple in the fruit drawer(none to be found!), Mary declared, “This refrigerator is a MESS!”
And then she spontaneously pulled out rags, Windex and the mini-vacuum and began to clean. It was surreal.
Later, when choosing a slightly more practical outfit for our rainy, cold weather she stood in front of her overstuffed closet and said, “I have too many fancies.”
She turned to me, “Really, mom you should be ashamed of yourself.”
I started to laugh.
“I’m not kidding, really.”
