23 Things That Happen When You Get Drunk With Your Mum

Mums love to Facebook stalk.

Posted on

1. The first thing you'll do is start gossiping about other family members.

The CW

Your mum will tell you all the dirt on your cousins she found out through her sister, and you'll tell her what you're brother's girlfriend is really like.

2. And you'll get really mean about that one cousin you both can't stand.

And you can get as mean as you like, because you know your mum would never, ever tell on you.

3. Then you'll help her stalk people on Facebook.

Comedy Central

She'll be very interested in what your ex is up to.

4. It won't take her long before she starts seriously quizzing you on your love life.

She'll try to be polite at first, but all respect for your privacy will disappear after the first glass of wine.

5. At first you'll be like "STHHHAPPPP ITT".

BBC

You'll say there's nothing happening even if there totally is.

6. But then after another drink she'll be helping you craft replies on Tinder.

E!

And then you'll tell her how you had that weird moment with Kevin at the Christmas party, and lately you’ve been having strange feelings about your friend Tom who you kissed once when you were 17.

7. And then you'll realise she's actually the best at giving advice.

Your mum might be really good at texting if she didn't have to find her glasses every time she needed to reply.

8. You'll give her some advice, too.

E!

Because she knows she can learn as much from you as you can learn from her.

And alcohol means you really don't hold back.

9. You'll tell her a secret you've been keeping since you were 16.

"Remember when you and Dad went to Paris for your anniversary? I had a party and one of Grandma's best plates broke." And she'll pretend to care for about a minute.
