A “Touching” Conversation

7 Dec

It’s usually my mother with whom I have strange conversations.  (Check me out!  I used “whom” correctly in a sentence!)  This afternoon, however, my sister played the role of the touched person in the conversation.  As I do on most days, I called her on my way home from work.  Today the conversation turned to something a little bit more topical (but not like a topical cream, I don’t need that):

  • Me: Did you hear Elizabeth Edwards died?
  • Sister: She did?  That’s terrible!  Very sad!  I had no idea.
  • Me: Yeah, they just released the news about 15 minutes ago.
  • Sister: Ugh, awful.  What happened?
  • Me: Well, apparently the Cancer came back and the doctors told her there was nothing they could do.  They apparently had given her weeks to live, but I guess it took her faster than they thought.  Very sad.
  • Sister:  Terrible.  She was a good actress.
  • Me: What?
  • Sister:  I said she was a good actress.
  • Me:  What are you talking about?
  • Sister:  Katherine Hepburn was good actress.
  • Me:  Not Katherine Hepburn!!  I said ELIZABETH EDWARDS!
  • Sister:  OH!!  Oh, I totally thought you said Katherine Hepburn!  And wait, didn’t she die like 20 years ago?
  • Me:  Uh, yeah, she died a long time ago.  Way to listen!
  • Sister:  Sorry!  I didn’t hear you!
  • Me:  Fine, whatever.  Anyway, in other news, I have two pimples.
  • Sister:  You do??
  • Me: Yes, I sure do.  I’m very excited about it.
  • Sister:  When did you get those?
  • Me:  This morning.
  • Sister:  You know, they’re not allowed off leash in the state of Maryland.
  • Me:  What?
  • Sister:  Yeah, they have to be on leash at all times.
  • Me:  No, I heard you, but I don’t know what you’re talking about.
  • Sister:  Pit bulls are dangerous, they have to be on leash. You did say “pit bulls” didn’t you?
  • Me: Uh, no, I said pimples.
  • Sister:  Oh, I was wondering why you would get a pit bull!
