My older sister’s friend had moved away to university, and her parents immediately turned her room into a study.
Me – When I go to uni, you’re not going to turn my room into a study, are you?
Mum – No, why would we do that?
Me – Thanks, Mum.
Mum – It’s gonna be my shoe room.

As a kid I was convinced that I was destined to be the next Judy Garland, and my mum patiently drove me to auditions and mopped up my tears when I never got the part. One day I was particularly upset, and the following exchange occurred.
Me – I’m never going to another audition -never, never never!
Mum – Alright, honey. You really aren’t very good.
Oddly enough, it did stop me crying; I think from shock more than anything.

Me – Hey, that dress looks great! Have you lost some weight?
Mum – Yep, and it looks like you found it.
