I need my mommy

When I was a kid heading out the door for school my mom would make sure I wore my coat if it was chilly. Yesterday, I tossed my suitcase and briefcase into the car. I grabbed a couple bottles of water from the garage 'fridge and backed out of the garage. It was not until I stopped for lunch that I realized I had left without a jacket. To no surprise, the further north I travelled, the colder it got. Then it started to rain. By the time I left the hotel for supper it was in the low 40s and raining. I had on my dress shirt. I had to turn on the heat in the car. It is cold this morning. My customer will wonder why I don't have on a jacket.

I'm an idiot. I guess I still need my mom to say "Joe, put on a coat". But I don't care what she says, I'm not gonna put on those stupid f-ing rubber boots like I had to wear as a kid.

Galoshes. wow. Talk about flashback.

Maybe I mentioned it once, but I can remember hiding my "moon boots" in the snow on the walk to school and then digging them out on the way home.

I remember getting stuck in the mud in my galoshes.
The more I tried the stucker I got.
Mom came home and was furious that I was just standing there playing in the mud and came and grabbed my arm, unwittingly pulling me out of the galoshes which remained stuck in the mud.

After about the third time I "accidentally" left my boots at school Mom packed me in the car and made me go in and fetch them.
