It’s 2007, and my mom and I just finished a shouting match. Neither of us have any recollection of what we were fighting about, but I’m going to assume it was my fault.
Just minutes after I slammed my bedroom door shut, my mom re-enters my room.
“I’m hungry,” she says. “Want to go to lunch?”
I look up at her for a long moment.
“Sure,” I say with a shrug, hopping off of my bed.
Growing up, my mom and I did everything together, and no matter how hard we fought we couldn’t stand to be angry at each other for more than a few minutes. Even now, after college and then a career took me states away, we still talk on the phone several times a day, usually for no particular reason.
Whether your mom is biological, adoptive, or someone who has become a parental figure in your life, the words “My mom is my best friend” may have left your lips once or twice.
