I was complaining to my mother the other day that I found it hard to get to an ATM, and I never ended up having enough cash on me. She said to me, "I'll give you some cash next time I see you. Just don't lose it."
I found that remark completely baffling. She says that to me all the time, whenever she gets me something, that I shouldn't lose it.
The confusing thing is that there is absolutely nothing I have ever done to make her think that I would lose money that she gave me. Even as a kid, I never lost things. And as an adult, I definitely don't lose things.
Is there a point when your parents stop thinking of you as a three-year-old?
