Laughter is Good Medicine

Some moments are just meant to be captured on DVR and replayed over and over again until you laugh so hard you wet the bed. --Momma J

We recently discovered the show "Modern Family". To say the writers are comedic geniuses wouldn't even be giving enough credit where it is totally due.

The episode we watched last night featured the typical "I'm embarrassed by my Mom" teenage girl (Alex). She kept ditching dear Mom (Claire) to be with friends and telling Claire she'd meet her at the car.

Claire, as you can imagine, wasn't handling this well. Babies you gave birth to aren't supposed to reject you, right?

Moments after becoming upset, Mom got pissed. In a big way. A little orchestrated comeuppance was in order. So, when Alex finally made it LATE, LATE, LATE to the car, Claire was like a rattlesnake, all coiled up and cool.

She let Alex apologize. Then Alex, obviously brainfried from going through puberty, followed the apology with a request for money, so she could join her snobby friends for a quick bite. Mom complied, even giving her DOUBLE the money daughter requested. This is when the rattle started to shake. Violently.

Then Mom's fangs came out, as she yelled to Alex, who was now standing with her friends:

"Alex, honey, when you're out shopping, you might want to pick yourself up a training bra. I know you don't need one now but your little boobies are going to come in soon. Mommy loves you, kitten!"

And as Claire drove off? "That'll teach her to screw with me!"

Laughing. Crying. Trying not to pee.


Which is why God completely crossed Motherhood of a female-type off my list.

But, I'm sure happy to watch, at a distance, as the hilarity commences between these two.

Check it out: Modern Family, Wednesdays at 8pm CST.

And, if you wet your pants or the bed? You've been warned......
