A Conversation With My Mother: Love and Bulls

“Helen, did I ever tell you about the time I got chased by a bull?”

*Queue bursts of laughter and wine spewing out of my mouth*

“It isn’t funny, it was one of the most terrifying moments of my life!”

“Sorry, couldn’t help it. Where were you going?”

“What do you mean?”

“Where were you headed when you got chased by the bull?”

“Oh just a boyfriends house, it didn’t last very long – I wasn’t really interested in him.”

“Why did you date him then?”

“Well he was madly in love with me, obviously.”

Thanks Mother, I can always count on you to give me sound advice: all beasts are the same, but don’t just stay in the field with the ones that won’t charge at will.
