Oh, parents.

An email conversation between me and my father:

Dad: Off to Lutsen in a hour or two. Uncooperative weather; trip could be a bust, but we'll see.
Me: You mean, your trip could be a bust, be a bust, be a bust in the hall of fame?
Dad: Precisely, Miss Munchkin. In Bayfield Wi for lunch. Rain has stopped.


And an excerpt from a Skype conversation:

Me: Hey, when are we going to see Candide (this being a musical) again?
Mom: Um, let me check. ...We're going to see Candide on the 14th, in the afternoon.
Dad: (in the background) *unintelligible mumblings*
Mom: What??
Dad: *more unintelligible mumblings*
Mom: .......**TSK**.
Me: What?
Mom: He wants to know if we're going to have sweet potatoes while we watch Candide.
Me: Ah.
Mom: ..."Candide yams..."
Me: Yeah, I got it.


And finally, some snippets from my mother:

Mom: Dad is planning on doing some painting today but first he has to borrow a super long ladder from Michael. I'm not excited. Anything you have to borrow a super long ladder for is way too risky in my book.

Mom: If you are on line at the moment, please respond. I just want to make sure you're ok. Don't think I'm crazy, but I've been having weird thoughts and just want to check.

Mom: So I was at Jewel today and what to my wondering surprise did I find. Libbey's canned pumpkin! And lots of it! I bought six regular cans and one large can, so we should be good, at least for Thanksgiving.

Mom: Dad is, as we speak, puttering in the garage. He has "mouse proofed" it in anticipation of leaving the new car up here for the winter. Moth balls, silver flashing material around the baseboards, patching holes in the garage, etc. When we leave he puts steel wool in the exhaust pipe. Mind you, we have never seen mouse droppings in the garage, even after it had been vacant. Evidently mice love sports cars.............
