How was your day today? Bad because your mom told you to turn down your music way before 11PM last night, which is your agreed-up “music off” time, and it’s just like, ugh, mom, thanks for letting me move back in with you in this tough financial time, I really do appreciate it and am trying to get back on my feet, but LAY OFF ALREADY! Bradley Cooper can relate! Because he lives with his mom too! I mean, his situation is very different from the situation I just described (yours), but it’s KIND OF the same. Here’s how it’s going for him, from his interview with Details:
The best way I can answer that is to say we’re surviving. Both of us. Let’s face it: It’s probably not easy for her, by the way, to be living with her son. It’s life. And right now, two years after my father’s death, this is where we are. My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us. It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped. And we need each other. So here we are. But don’t get me wrong. It’s not without complications. It’s not like I live in a compound and she’s in the guesthouse. No. She’s in the next room. But here’s the thing: She’s a cool chick. We can hang, and she can roll with the punches. If that wasn’t the case, there’s no way.
Aww. That’s actually very sweet, Bradley Cooper. Though I bet your home is probably closer to whatever compound you were describing than the two-bedroom apartment scenario you described next, and also what punches are you making your mother roll with?! But mostly: What a good son! Not like you, waiting all day to write up a comment on Videogum complaining about your poor old mom roommate. Tsk tsk. How else was your day, though?! Tell meeeee! I hope it was good!
