Mom...You Are a Country Girl

Son: Mom, I think you are a country girl. Not a city girl.

Me: Well, I try to be son.

Son: Yeah. I think you are.

Me: Thank you.

Son: Yeah, cuz city girls are all pretty and stuff...

Me: WHAT? You don't think I am pretty?... geez... thanks!

Son: NO, I don't think you ACT all pretty and such. You are pretty, you just don't act like they do on t.v. when they act all pretty and from the city so......

Me: Oh, Ok. Well good. Because a person can be pretty without acting like that. Because when you "act" pretty is about the time you start looking ugly.

Son: That is why I said you are a country girl. I want to be a country boy. But, you know that.

Me: I wouldn't have it any other way son.
