My mom told me that she didn't need my help with the buying of Christmas presents this year. I was relieved because I have many brothers and many nephews. There really aren't a lot of people to buy cute girly stuff for. So I was a little perplexed that she had been able to pick out the same present for all of us; especially since there's a wide range of married and single people as well as ages with my siblings.
Then things became even more curious when she had to make an appointment and drive two hours away to get our presents. The only possible explanation I can come up with is family funeral plots. At least now I'll be able to tell if she thinks I'll ever marry if she buys one plot or two. Possibly there's the whole Gilmore Girls crypt annex conversation coming in my future.
