Moms (older moms that is) just shouldn't drink

So we took my mom out for dinner last night for a late Mother's Day get together.  The place we took her is a good 25 miles away but it's the best Chinese food we've ever had and she was wanting Chinese so it was perfect.  It was also the same place we took HDT's mom.

We each had a drink with dinner and she was so damn funny afterward.  When we got outside she says something along the lines of, "Ok, I've had a drink, you'll have to help me to the car.  Where is it?"  Too funny, one little drink and she was worried about walking across the street safely enough.

Then we're almost home, just another 7 or so miles to go and she realizes she forgot her purse there.  She didn't think anything of it because she was carrying something when she carried out her leftovers.  So HDT gives them a call so they can look for it and they did find it right where she left it on the floor just under the table next to the wall.  She tried to convince us to just go on home and she'd pick it up the next day but we told her there was no way THAT was going to happen.  She felt so bad about it but we didn't think anything of it and were very happy to go back and get it.

So when we got her home we went in to spend a little more time with her and give her her cards that I completely forgot to give at the restaurant.  I always give two cards, one really nice and one funny, I just can't help it.  She of course liked them both.

What made the whole purse thing even funnier is that his mom thought she did the same thing only leaving hers at the store we stopped off at afterward.  We had made it all the way back to our house though.  She and HDT were outside with Poydras and she's putting things away in her car when she realized she didn't have her purse and starts to freak out.  I found our receipt for the store and there was a number on there so I hand that to HDT to give them a call and I step back in the house and there's her purse sitting right on the kitchen counter.  Right were she had set it not 1 minute before and already forgot.

So last night I joked with HDT that we can't let our moms drink anymore it messes them up too much.  Made mom laugh of course.
