Mom’s Now Written Me a Series of Letters I’m Afraid to Open

Older woman: So, I was at my parents’ house this weekend and there were some condoms sitting on the table…

Older woman: Yeah. So I asked my mom, ‘Why do you need condoms?’ And she said, ‘It’s for easier clean up.’
Friend: Gross!
Older woman: Yeah… So that’s why I stopped asking my parents questions.
