Checkmate

Archive 2017-I miss you Mom

(My Mom had a scarf obsession. Drawers filled with scarves. You never saw her without a scarf. She loved them. My obsession-shoes.)

Mom: Claudia is going to bring me a bunch of scarves.

Me: How many scarves do you need?

Mom: How many pairs of shoes do you need?

Checkmate….well played, well played.
