Mom: Are your fingers swollen?
Mom: You sure? They look swollen.
Me: No, I mean yes, I'm sure. My fingers are not swollen.
Mom: they sure look swollen.
Me: My fingers are not swollen.
Mom: It's hard to believe they're not swollen, they look swollen.
Me: Ok, they might be swollen.
Mom: You should probably get that checked out.
The conversation takes the trip down the doctors/meds/healthcare system road.
Thanks to mom and my non-swollen, chunky fingers I experienced a motivational burst, or boost if you will.
