My mom has this phrase, “I’m just saying.” She says it after every, hmmm, not a compliment, more of a suggestion? I am trying to phrase this post delicately because I know my mom is reading and is most likely about two seconds away from texting or calling me to express her colorful feelings about being the subject of this post.
Like the other day, for probably like the millionth time in my life, my mom said to me that if I gave up cheese I would probably lose a lot of weight. “I’m just saying.”
I know my mom wasn’t telling me I am fat or to lose weight. I mean a few of these post baby pounds could probably vanish and I would be A-ok. I mean he is almost one. I can’t really call it post baby weight anymore, right? But it is like by saying, “I’m just saying” it is her get out of jail free card. Like I am your mother and I can tell you what I really think because if anybody is allowed to do that, it is me, the woman who birthed your giant head.
With the cheese issue, my mom really hates cheese because she is lactose intolerant. Womp, womp. Her loss, am I right? That is one, “I’m just saying” suggestion that I am most likely never heeding. Cheese, bread, wine, pasta, and tomatoes are all things I cannot live without. I could cut back but never give up.
The hardest would you rather question ever proposed in my opinion is, would you rather live without sex or cheese? Those of you lactose intolerant cannot answer. Hahaha! Automatic disqualification.
It is dishes like this super decadent mac and cheese with bacon that make me never ever want to divorce from cheese.
Mom, I can’t quit cheese. Just sayin’!
