Conversations with Mom

I love my mom. Sometimes what I love most about her is how different we are and how easy it is to shock her. Like the time I told her I was going to get married in the gazebo out in Alamo Plaza, hire homeless people to stand around us holding roses and then walk over to Pat O'Brien's for our reception complete with a Hurricane Fountain. I seriously wondered if she was going to survive that suggestion.

So tonight we were talking about my SIL who decided to quit her job. She wants to spend more time with her family which is totally understandable and is thinking about doing some kind of at home sales/party type thing like make-up or Pampered Chef or something. I don't know.

Me: I think if I was ever going to sell something from home it would be sex toys.
Mom: What!? That's gross!
Me: No way. Do you know how much money you can make? We had one for Julie's bachelorette party and we probably spent close to $1,000 between all of us. I think the girl got 30% so that's $300 she just made for a few hours of work. PLUS it's kind of pyramidish so if you get other people to sell you get a portion of their sales too. There's a lady on my street that's sort of the sex toy madam and has a bunch of girls working for her. She probably rakes it in!
Mom: Don't you EVER sell that stuff. I'd be so embarrassed!
Me: I don't know why. You're not selling it. I think it'd be fun and hilarious.
Mom: I would. It's just gross.
Me: Yeah, but you can make a ton of money doing it.
Mom: I have to go. Our visiting teachers are here.
Me: *Dying Laughing* That's awesome! I just made you late for the Mormons talking to you about sex toys.

and then my mom gave me a very quick goodbye and promptly hung up on me. I half expect the missionaries to be on my doorstep tomorrow morning so they can pray for me.


  1. This is freakin' awesome! Yeah, I bet they do rake in the dough.

  2. Ah, classic Faith. It doesn't get any better than that.

  3. That's funny! The only thing I wouldn't do is throw a sex toy party for a relative. Awkward!

  4. Best post I've read lately! You're hilarious!
