My Aunt Heidi relayed an adorable story the other night and I just had to share. Plus, one can never pass up an opportunity to tease ones mother.*
Mom: Did you read Aimee’s blog today??? (referring to the Rad Moves entry)
(Both laugh heartily over it for about 5 minutes straight)
Heidi: (Trying to talk through the remains of her laughter)… You have no idea what the word “rad” means, do you?”
Mom: NOT A CLUE.
Heidi said she thought she was going to wet herself. And proceeded to give her the blow-by-blow on what “rad” means.
BUT WAIT. IT GETS BETTER.
In a conversation later that day…
Mom was talking about her impending visit over New Years and how she can’t wait to see us, and – of course, especially Declan. And then she said to Heidi… and, I quote… “I can’t wait to see his rads.” Heidi nearly wet herself for the second time in one day.
Not to worry, I have since explained to my mother that “rad” is – in fact – an adjective, not a noun.
