Looking for the peanuts
Mom: If he'll use it.
Me: I think you guys should keep it if you'll use it.
Dad: We got it for the new bathroom, to match the clock we got since that lady from church overslept.
Me: What happened?
Mom: She didn't use a watch and she was late for her solo in the choir, and I was trying to get her to go but the clock on the thermostat was 40 minutes behind in the choir room, so I thought it would be nice to have a clock in the bathroom, in case we ever had guests. I gave her one of my watches.
Dad: She was a little wacko anyway because she had a kid without getting married and never got a job and she home schooled him.
Mom: She was actually famous in Canada for lobbying for home schooling and doing radio interviews about it.
Dad: How did she find out about our church? Kofi Annan?
Mom: That wasn't his name.
Dad: Who was that African guy? Boatung?
Mom: That's wasn't it.
Dad: Where are the peanuts?
Mom: Are they back here?
Dad: Do we have to take the exit for Kennebunkport?
Mom: No. Why are you holding your hand like that?
Dad: I'm waiting for the peanuts.
Dad: You ever have Popeye chicken?
Dad: Hot huh?
