Setting: My mom’s house in Georgia,  Christmas  Eve as we’re leaving to head back home, standing on Mama’s back porch amid a bazillion flowers in terra cotta, plastic, and ceramic  containers  while we’re hauling suitcases  to the car.

Attract Him Back

My mom to my daughters: Girls, did you see my pot plants? They sure are pretty.

Me: Huh??????

My mom: Girls, would you like to take home some of Grandma’s pot plants?

Shannon:  Oh.   Grandma.   You   mean,   your   potted plants?
