Talks with Mom during dinner are usually triggered by something that is reported on the news.  The conversations are widely varied, often baffling and frequently hysterical.  One night Bill and Mom had the following “chat”…

Bill:      “The Diamondbacks seem to have turned around and started to win!”

Mom:   “What?”

Bill:      (loud) “The Diamondbacks have started winning.”

Mom:   “Who”

Bill:      (louder) “The Diamondbacks!”

Mom:   “I know why I can’t hear you.”

Bill:      (loudly) “Because I’m sitting on the same side as your bad ear?”

Mom:   “What?”

Bill:      (sigh) “I think it’s supposed to be hot tomorrow.”

Mom:   “Looks like it’s supposed to be over 100 tomorrow!”
