Mom: I got a giant picture of you as a Bride framed. Do you….want it?
Mom: Okay, why not?
Me: Because I don’t want to be a person who has a giant framed picture of myself as a bride in my house, but THANK YOU for asking and for getting it framed.
Mom: Would you like me to…..keep it in MY house instead, so you don’t have to feel like an outright narcissist, but when you visit, you can sort of quietly and privately enjoy that there is a giant framed picture of yourself as a bride, hanging somewhere?
Me: YES, WORKS FOR ME
