He would have said, "God dammit Allyson, it's Mother's Day".
And I would have said, "but Dad it's your birthday".
And he'd guffaw and lean back in his chair, "yes, and it has been for years. Go, celebrate with your family, you're a mother now, more important than being a daughter".
"Although I really don't know about you celebrating Mother's Day, as far as I can see you should just celebrate Father's Day twice. Seems to me that husband of yours does all the hard work."
But he didn't say that, although I know that he would have.
Happy Birthday Dad, Happy Mother's Day Me.
And Dad, Jack does all the laundry.
