We were debating starting the dog on a course of tablets that evening, or leaving it to the morning when he had his breakfast
Mum: Can you open them now, and see if they’re crushable, but if they’re not, don’t open them.

I returned home from the cinema and my mum asked what I had gone to see
Me – Bruno, it was very funny.
Mum – I know it, the one about the pregnant girl.
Me – It’s really, really not.

I was chatting to my mom on Skype this morning, and the following ensued…
Me: I had a really bad dream last night, I woke up with goosebumps everywhere.
Mom: Maybe you have a fever?
Mom: What did you dream?
Me: I can’t remember.
Mom: Then how do you know the dream was bad?
Me: Because I woke up from it, but then I went back to sleep, and now I don’t remember.
Mom: So you still don’t know if it was a bad or good dream! Maybe you needed to pee.
