Spooky Mother's Day!
It's Mother's Day and my husband will be working in a very busy restaurant all day. I'll be visiting my mother later this month and my friends are all with their mothers, so I'm thinking of taking myself to the creepiest museum in Chicago: The International Museum of Surgical Science. I've got a two-for-one pass (tickets are $22 each), but no one to go with. No problem. I'll just go up to the first museum-goer I see and offer them an $11 ticket if they'll say they're my guest. I never stay home because I can't find a friend to go with. I can usually find a friend wherever I'm going, at least a temporary one who serves the purpose.
I'm looking forward to seeing who takes their mom to the Museum of Surgical Science today. I expect the museum will be full of those of us without Mother's Day plans and those who hope their moms enjoy preserved cadavers, ancient skull-boring tools and Rotary International's End Polio Now exhibit. I don't know about them, but I plan to take my time wandering through it all.
Thus will some of us muddle through this holiday.
