She says, “Welcome to gollyland.”

gollyland is a place where you can’t create and you can’t consume.

My mother’s sweet tooth

I finish eating my broccoli and I go to put the spoon I used into the sink, which is filled with bowls and dishes.

My mother says, “Bring everything that needs to be washed.”

I say, “I have the bowl I had for the broccoli, but it’s okay. I’ll use it to microwave my chicken in a bit.”

She says, “Bring it here. It’ll attract flies.”

I say, “It won’t. Flies like fruits and onions. Broccoli isn’t sweet to them. They only land on sweet things.”

And I say, “Just like you do,” inducing laughter in her.
