The Last Time I Talked To My Mother...

This is based on a true story. A very, very true story.


Mom: Melissa, what does that mean?

Me: What?

Mom: What you just said.

Me: What did I just say?

Mom: "That's what she is wanting to know."

Me: Who's wanting to know?

Mom: Don't ask me - you said it.

Me: I never said that.

Mom: Yes, you did. Michelle said "That's the biggest arm I've ever seen" and then you said "that's what she's talking about."

Me: Okay, first of all, that is not what Michelle said. And secondly, that is not what I said.

Mom: But you know what I'm saying. What is it you're saying?

Me: "That's what she said?"

Mom: Who?

Me: No, me. "That's what she said" is what I said.

Mom: Right. You said something like, "That what she was thinking about."

Me: No, I'm pretty sure I said "that's what she said."

Mom: I know, Melissa. Quit being a smartalic. Now what does it mean?

Me: It is just something stupid you say after someone makes a comment. Its supposed to be a dirty joke, but I don't like to talk like that so I just say it after anything really.

Michelle: Yeah, right.

Melissa: I don't!

Mom: Well, here's what I don't like about it, we are talking about this girl and she can't even defend herself. We don't even know for sure if she said that.

Me: Huh?

Mom: SHE! Whoever she is. Who are we talking about? Who is this girl?


(That's what she said.)
