My mom called me a few days ago and asked if I would meet her for lunch.
She chose one of our favorite places to eat. The burger joint is known for having great fries and milkshakes. They also have insanely good cheese steaks. My mom was already sitting outside when I pulled up in my car. We walked into the restaurant and found a table. The restaurant offers table service, so we waited for the server to come and greet us. My mom told me about her day and some things that were going on with the ladies from the hairdresser. I tried to get my mom to tell me why she called and she was hesitating for a long time. She finally told me that she needed help to convince my dad that it was time to update to Central AC in the house. It was June and the temperatures were starting to get really hot and humid. My mom is tired of dealing with the heat and humidity. My dad won’t retire, so she wants him to install central heating and cooling so my mom can be more comfortable. She wants me to convince my dad to make the switch, but I know that there is no way at all that I am going to be able to convince my dad if my mom can’t do the job. I can talk statistics with him all day long, but he is cheap and frugal and not likely to spend the money unless my mom begs for the new appliance.
