I know a lot of folks were worried about Y2K.

This was pre-911, but not pre-apocalyptic thinking. I remember CNN’s report suggesting people go buy bottled water, toiletries, candles, batteries, and plenty of canned food. Then came my mother’s letter written to me on Monday, December 28th, 1999. Now even though her warnings may have seemed appropriate at the time, please try and understand that I grew up with this kind of thing…every single day of every single year. Y2K just became the catalyst and justification for everyone else to jump on board the Fear Fiesta…

Adam-
In the year 2000, don’t go up in a plane New Year’s Eve & don’t go on an elevator! Those are only the 2 things to avoid until we see how computers are working.
Love,
Mom

    Ok, I’ve only read some, not all, of your postings. But still-from what I’ve read- to me, it seems like you are complaining about having a mother who worries about you, thinks about you, and-….. LOVES you. I think you should be HAPPY and APPRECIATE what you have. Lord. You could have a mother who never thinks TWICE about you. You could have a mother who never ever even thinks about your safety, your well-being, your overall happiness. You could have a mother that only thinks about herself, a mother who doesn’t care about you, your kids, your LIFE. Instead, you post whining comments that your mom is telling you to be safe, to be careful, a mother who is concerned over you. I understand that it can get a bit extreme, but still. The fact that the first few posts I read were your derogatory copy and pastes of letters your mom sent you speaks volumes. Even the fact that you would disrespect her in this way, by posting ACTUAL copies of letters she sent you, shows me that you obviously have no respect for the person that gave you life. You need to get over yourself, and appreciate what you have. I will NOT be buying your book.

    PS- I just saw that my comment is “awaiting moderation.” I guess I shouldn’t expect to see it on here…figures…
