So this weekend I went out with my mom, like I to every few weeks to do some shopping and get some mother/son face time. While we were out, we went to breakfast, and I attempted to tell her about how I was reading “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened” by Jenny Lawson (which is an incredibly funny book, and I suggest you go buy it. Now. I will wait.)
Anyway, in the book she describes how she moved to the Texas hill country, and basically into my mom’s neighborhood. This is how the conversation went.
Me: So I am reading a really funny book written by a woman who lives near you.
Mom: Is it by that woman from Saturday Night Live?
Me: Huh? Someone from SNL (I didn’t actually say SNL, but I didn’t want to type out the whole thing because I am posting this from my phone on a city bus) lives near you?
Mom: I don’t think so.
Me: Then why did you guess that? And who are you talking about?
Mom: You know, Tina Fey. You said you were reading a funny book.
Me: I am pretty sure Tuna Fey lives in New York.
Mom: Blank stare
Me: I don’t think she lives near you.
Mom: Well of course not.
I just went back to eating my lunch at this point. Some conversations need to be ended before madness sets in.
