The Devil made me do it!


As hard as this is for me to admit, I bit the "mean" comment bait that was left for me on my "Laundry Smaundry" entry. What makes it even harder to swallow was that it was posted by my own mother. That's right folks, my mother, the woman who gave birth to me. I have to say when I first read the comment, I was totally surprised and offended that this random "non-blogger" would have the nerve to say this to me. I immediately started on my next entry, "I've hit a nerve!", which might I add was probably just what my mother, aka "evil mother of three cosby kids" wanted me to do. Like my title says, "The Devil made me do it!".
Most of you know my mother or have met my mother at least once; but not all of you really know the true "Melony" the "sick and twisted" Melony. I could fill a book on the many ways she has emotionally scarred her family and friends, most of all her own children. We should really all be in therapy. I guess that is why we all have taken up blogging for our own personal outlet. We thought it would be a safe place to express our feelings. But no, there is no hiding from the treachery of our mother. She is everywhere; just waiting to pounce on us in our most weakest of moments.
Like I said, after reading the comment for the first time I was appalled. But then, more and more as I thought about the actual words written it became clearly apparent as to who the culprit was! I thought about it all night, and even during church this morning. I had analyzed the heck out of these cruel words and was ready to confront my "devil" mother.
So...I waited until I knew she was out of church (where I can only hope she was so strongly convicted) this morning to call her and ask her if she was in fact the "evil mother of 3 cosby kids". At first she played dumb (like always). Then, all I could hear was the sound of that oh so evil laugh of satisfaction! A laugh that I am way too familiar with. Somehow she "feeds" off malicious deception. I don't know why it took me so long to piece it all together. Once again my mother has successfully managed to push all the right buttons. Kudos Mom!

Yes, she always succeeds....she even pulled me in, but as you know, I initially thought it might be her. I do remember her doing this thing in the car where we would all be talking and laughing and she would SLAM on the brakes sending us lurching forward and almost peeing our pants and she would yell, "seat belt check!" then laugh that evil laugh.....ooh to be able to get back at her someday.....

I don't even know your mother that well, but when I first read her screen name, not even the entry, I had a feeling it was her! But Mel, I don't think you should call your mother the devil, you must remember the 10 commandments!! he-he!
