Anxiety

Me: Hey, I'm going to go upstairs and take a shower.

C: (anguished sob) Mom! Why did you tell me that?! Now that I know you're going to be upstairs, I'll be scared to be alone down here. You shouldn't have told me that!

Pause.

Me: Okay. I guess I'm going to be... in the kitchen... for a while.

C: Okay.

(I leave and take my shower. C is fine.)
