My mother texted me today.
Mom: What do you want for Xmas?
I stopped. Panicked. Checked the calendar–then double-checked it.
Yep, it’s still September 8th.
Me: A vegetable steamer.
Mom: What size?
Ah ha! A trick question.
Me: Normal size.
Another trick question.
I asked Mr. Snark for his insight. He said, “Ask for a chain pull and a diesel engine.”
Me: “Yeah, thanks.”
Mr. Snark: “Where are you going?”
“Amazon. It’s time to start my Christmas shopping.”
