I have a friend that refers to her mom as “mom” in conversation. She doesn’t say “my mom” and so any snooping eavesdropper might assume that we have the same mother. I always poke fun at her and repeat “Oh yeah, mom…” while I roll my eyes. The funny thing is she isn’t the only person I have met that does this. Do you know other people that refer to their maternal unit as “mom”? Maybe I just come from a selfish breed because I find that even in conversations with my very own, flesh and blood siblings I say “my mom”, just in case my sisters were confused about whose mother we were talking about. 😉
