|***The following conversation took place between my mother and me a few days ago. We hadn't spoken in over a week which is unusual for us.
Mom: What'cha doing?
Mom: Oh! What'cha been doing?
Mom: I see.
Me: How was your trip?
Me: Did you do any sight-seeing?
Mom: Well, we started to get out of the car once, but it was too hot.
Me: I see. When did you get back?
Mom: A few days ago. Did you do anything for Friend's birthday?
Me: We were gonna go fishing, but it was too humid. Went to the casino instead.
Mom: Oh, my! How much did you lose?
Me: None! I came out ahead for a change.
Mom: Wow! Good for you. What about Friend?
Me: Well...it wasn't her day. She did get to keep her birthday cake, though.
Mom: Hahahahaha. Lololololololol. Hehehehhe...
Me: You shouldn't laugh at that...
Mom: I can't help it; it's funny to me.
Me: I'm going to cook a birthday dinner, do you want to come eat?
Mom: Come to your house? In this heat? Heavens, no! It would be fun to watch you play musical air conditioners, though. Well, gotta go, Wheel of Fortune is on. Bye.
