On the phone . . .
ME: Where have you been?
MOM: I had to go to Trader Joe’s. They were out of my Belgian Butter Waffle Cookies so a nice girl told me she would save six boxes for me when they came in.
ME: Six boxes?
MOM: Well, I don’t want to run out.
ME: Is this some kind of new food storage plan?
ME: So, did you get your six boxes?
MOM: I bought eight. I eat them instead of graham crackers before I take my pain pills so my stomach doesn’t get upset.
MOM: But, I need to stop eating so many because my clothes are getting tight.
