Freckl || Scotland
Mum – What the?! Young lady, did you get your nose pierced?!
Me – No?
Mum – Yes you did, I can see the hole where you took it out!
Me – realising No, mum, that’s just a freckle – I’ve always had it.
Mum – Oh. Sorry. Well, make sure you don’t get it pierced.

Whilst on holiday in Turkey, my mum decided to call her sister from the beach. No one answered (possibly because it was at 11am on a weekday)
Mum – I expect she’ll be outside in the garden on a beautiful sunny day like this.

I was saying goodbye before leaving for my second year at university. The house we were renting had not yet been hooked up with a phone line or internet.
Me – I love you, I’ll call you when I get there!
Mom – How will you do that with no phone line?
Me – … I’ve got my mobile.
Mom – Ok, but if that doesn’t work, email me.
Me – I told you, we haven’t got the internet set up yet. I’ll call, don’t worry.
Mom – Ok, well make sure you do. Or you could let me know via instant messenger, I’ll stay signed on in case.

Me – My tonsils are really swollen today.
Mum – “Oh my God! What does that mean? Have you got tonsillitis? Or glandular fever? Is it swine flu?!?
Me – No, no, I’m fine, just a bit under the weather, don’t worry.
Mum – BUT THAT ISN’T NORMAL!
Me – Yes it is, it happens now and then. I’ll be ok.
Mum – But MY tonsils don’t do that!
Me – … I thought you had yours out when you were little?
Mum – … oh yes.
