One more place for girls to yammer on…

Thanks, Mom.

This was a discussion my family had one night last week (During this discussion my dad was cleaning his guns at the kitchen table. He does this a lot. It’s probably about as safe as it sounds.):

Mom: Why is it so hot in here?
Dad: Because I turned the heat on, it’s 50 degrees outside!
Mom: Well if you guys got up and moved a little more, you wouldn’t be so cold.
Dad: You know Brandy, someday these guns are going to be worth a lot of money. If you’re smart, when I die, you’ll take them to a sporting goods store and trade them in for a winter coat. You’ll freeze around here without me to turn the heat on.

 

Mom had her own gem during dinner tonight where I had expressed frustration over a job interview that didn’t go well:

Mom (to my dad): One of our outlets isn’t working, pretty soon I’m leaving you for an electrician.
Me: No need, I can just date an electrician.
Mom: If you’re as good at dating as you are at finding a job, I’m screwed.

 

My parents are both great at a lot of things. Boosting morale might not be one of them.

  1. please know that I am going to acquire a gun if only to clean it ominously at the table whenever my roommate refuses to do the dishes.

    That’s pretty much exactly the kind of thing my Mum would say too – we definitely need to get them together some time!
