I had a conversation with my mom this morning which was cut short by the A/C guy coming to do a service on my HVAC. Not that I feel threatened or anything, but seriously?
Me: Hey mom, what’s up with you guys this morning?
Mom: Nothing much, as usual. But, your dad asked me this morning to find out when you’re coming to visit again.
Me: I’m going to try and come for two weeks over the holidays, why?
Mom: Hang on. Let me tell your dad. (Insert mom telling my dad the news that I am trying to come home for the holidays.)
Mom: Well. Your father asked me to ask you if you would send Cosmo for a visit between now and Christmas.
Me: Really, mom? Cosmo? What about me, or Clover?
Mom: No, he just wants you to send Cosmo.
Mom: Yes! Seriously!
