Motherhood, marriage, and midlife.

Antique coffee grinder by Zassenhaus Deutsch: ...

A conversation between a mother and two teenage boys.

“Mom, the ‘grinder’ called for you. She left a message on the machine.” – Old Boy.

“What?! The ‘grinder’…what does that mean?” – Mom.

“Dad says it’s your friend who keeps ‘grinding and grinding’ until finally you give in to her.” – Tall Boy.

“Dad really said THAT?!!” – Mom.

“Mom, Dad says a lot of things when you are not around.”- Old Boy
