“I realized I was my mom when I picked up all the pillows off the ground that my roommates had left and said out loud in frustration by myself, ‘How freaking hard is it to put the pillows back on the couch! Aghhhh!!!!!’ Then I stopped, my mouth dropped, and I threw all the pillows on the ground and laughed out loud. I use to think my mom was crazyyyyy for getting upset about that. I thought ‘geez mom it’s just a pillow.’ Not anymore. After a moment I came back and picked up the pillows.
It creeps up on you when you least expect it.”
