What do you want from me? (For Mother's Day or from Your S/O)

Asked by Adirondackwannabe (36545points) May 5th, 2010

Listening to Adam’s song this morning, it occurred to me this would make an interesting question if you substitute someone important in your life for me. It could be your S/O or a very close friend. What would you like from your S/O? Is something missing in the relationship you would like your S/O to give you that they’re not giving you now? Or with Mother’s Day coming up, it could be what you as a mother would like for your day. What does a mom most want from her family?

I would want you to iron my dress shirts and clean my garage. Plus make me a really good Bloody Mary!

I would like for all of my children to make an effort to get along, maybe even be nice to each other. And dinner out somewhere. Where people wait on me!

I want you to listen to me and care about what I think. I want you to be honest with me and let me know what you need to be happy. I want you to laugh whenever you feel the tiniest smidge of happiness. I want you to feel the swell of joy at that sunrise and the quiet retreat of the tide going home. I want you to cross off one more thing from your list. I want you to put the cool grass between your toes and learn to grin like a loon again.

this is for all

@gemiwing That was very nice. We need an Awesome Answer Section. Probably never happen.

I want for the people who love me to give me what I need without me having to spell it out. That just says you don’t really know me.

I want you to stop trying to get all fresh with me in the middle of the night when I’m trying to sleep. I have to work the next day!! F#@$ off!!! :-D

Which one is the question?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Sophief I know what you mean. I looked at it and said, this is really two questions, S/O or Mom. But if I only get three for the day, what’s my options? Go for either.

@Adirondackwannabe So you want to replace someone in my life? Sorry, I don’t really understand the question. If that is right, you can be my dad if you like. He’s pissed off and I really miss him.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Sophief I think on some abstract levels at times. My thought was what would you really like from someone in your life. What would you like them to give to you, on any level, if that makes sense. My standing offer to adopt you as my little sister is always there.

Sophief's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I don’t ask for much. You can be my brother if you like.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Sophief Thanks, If that’s what you want from me, I’d be honored.

@Pandora… Yes, do something nice or even something to help me out. Without me having to ask.

I have a great family. I am so busy with caring for my head injured sister, home schooling the kids and, well, that takes up most of my day. I find it hard to even think about what my ideal day would be. Something quiet. If you could build me a room that was sound proof and furnish it with a comfortable reading chair and nice speaker system so I could play classical music as I read. That would be nice.

If I mess up, I want my wife to forgive me.

For Mother’s Day, I just want a day off. No housework, no cooking, just relaxing without having any responsibility.

I would love to see my oldest son who emigrated to Sweden about 15 years ago, and meet the granddaughter I’ll never see.

I want to give my mother a condo back home in California she can afford to pay on her own.
