As steady readers know, Mama recently came into some money. As they also know, there are a lot of things that she SHOULD do with this money. And, if you’ve read more than two posts about her, you know already that what she SHOULD do (in any given situation) is the very last thing that she WILL do.
Has mama replaced her refrigerator so she can eat at home? Of course not.
Has she made any effort to move, as she is almost certainly going to HAVE to soon? Nein.
Has she bought so much as a box of garbage bags so she can put her house into some semblance of order? Surely you jest!
But what did she buy? Naturally, a new (to her) car. Because she really needed one. You know, because a car is top priority for someone who doesn’t drive for months at a time. For someone who can let a flat tire keep their previous car parked for the better part of the winter. For someone who can’t drive from one side of town to the other because they are under some delusion that they are feeble and helpless. Yes, it makes sense.
