Mom Compliments

At Grandma’s house, spotting me stretched out on Grandma’s bed in my pajamas, Mom said, “Amanda, you look really good.”

“It’s ’cause I’m happy.”

“Yeah, but I mean you look healthy and strong. I think it’s the taekwondo.”

Later, in the car, “Well, I haven’t met [Good Man] yet, but the way you talk about him, I can tell that you two work very well together. He seems to know how to handle you. I’m happy for you.”

Damn, those were nice things to hear.

    Heh. “He seems to know how to handle you” enlightened me to the many possible interpretations of “handle.”

    He seems to know how to handle you.

    He seems to know how to handle you.

    Well, Mom meant it in the “Amanda’s cranky, hungry, and tired and they get lost and she loses her temper and he calms her down in a manner of minutes” way.

    But your interpretations are also correct depending on the time and place. And…mood.
