"Mom, here's your present. Read the card first."
"Oh, Aidan. Did you make it?" I asked.
"Nah, but it's funny," Aidan says.
So I pluck the card off the top of the present and open it. It's one of my cards... that I made.
I look at him sideways. Certainly he knows I made it?
"Read it, Mom!" Aidan insists.
"I must say you look fabulous." I read and then I open it to the inside, "And on my birthday you must tell me I look fabulous."
He laughs and laughs, and so I laugh. At him.
Finally he breaks off, "Funny, Huh, Mom?"
Yeah Aidan. Funny. On so many levels.
And I get the feeling that he and I will split the Lemonheads he bought me for my present.
