Response to Groupie #1: The Thing About Mothers

This blog hasn't even been live for two whole days yet and I'm already being swamped with letters! Big thanks to everyone for reading, subscribing, writing in, and encouraging this crazy project! I have had a lot of fun coming up with responses to the questions I have gotten. There should be several videos popping up here over the next few days.

Anyway, without further ado, here is the first letter I received:

Dear Dr. Lauren,
My mother is a real bitch. Bi-polar, two faced, ect ect ect. I can't stand her. I know I won't have to see her often starting soon, due to getting married and moving into my own apartment. How do you suggest I handle her in the mean time?
I would like this question answered in the style of Original Sound trash, possibly sounding like their #1 hit, "Large Intestine".
Groupie #1

Groupie #1 happens to be a good friend of mine and a big fan of my band. "Large Intestine" is a song that has only been heard by about three people. But I digress. Here is my attempt at a musical response:

Okay, so the advice itself is probably on the lame side. Sorry Groupie #1. Hopefully you like the song. If not, I can always just record a reprise of "Large Intestine" for you. (Yes world, that song is really about digestive organs. It was written very late at night. There's a reason only three people have ever heard it).

If you are confused by the term "groupie" and want to know what that means, you are in luck! Someone asked me a question about that and I plan to shed some light on it in my next post. Stay tuned!

And if you are in need of some advice in the form of a song, don't hesitate to ask. :)
