If you give a mom a headache

If you give a mom a headache, she’ll want some medicine.

She won’t want to take it on an empty stomach, so she’ll have to make some dinner.

Because she’s not feeling well, she’ll suggest making something really easy like pizza.

When she realizes she’s out of frozen gluten free crusts, she’ll have to make new pizza dough.

She’ll see that the kitchen counter is covered with dirty dishes, so she’ll want to load the dishwasher

Since the dishwasher is full of clean dishes from this morning, she’ll ask her son to unload it.

Seeing the clean dishes will remind her daughter that her stuffed animals need something to drink.

When the girl runs through the kitchen to get a cup, the son will decide he needs a helper.

While struggling over a plastic cup (he wants it put away, she wants to serve tea to the bears) the kids will bump into the bookshelf, which will shake and send a beautiful glass flower vase teetering.

The crash will make mom run out of the bathroom (where she was hiding for a blessed 90 seconds).

While on her hands and knees, picking up glass, she’ll remember that her father really liked the Glass Museum and that she owes him a call.

She’ll go to get her phone, clear across the room, and will find yet another shard of glass (way over there!).

She’ll sigh and go get the vacuum.

While vacuuming under the couch (she might as well do a thorough job of it), she’ll find an old crusted end of pizza that the dog must have dragged under there.

When she sees the pizza, she’ll remember the dinner.

If she remembers dinner she’ll realize that she STILL has a headache.

And if mom has a headache, she’ll probably want some medicine.
