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.

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.

My mum walked in from the supermarket with about three carrier bags full … of honey.
Me – Er, what’s with the honey?
Mum – I read that it doesn’t go off, so I thought I’d stock up. You know, in case.
Me – In case of what?!
Mum – In case something happens,like a nuclear explosion.
Me – So, if there’s a nuclear explosion, we’ll be ok, because we’ve got fifty odd jars of honey?
Mum – Beaming Exactly!

Frustrated with being single, I turned to internet dating, and met a nice sounding man. After swapping emails for a few months we decided to meet, and in the interests of safety I told my parents where I was going.
Mum – But – but – you don’t know him! What if he’s a paedophile?!
Me – I’ll probably be ok then, seeing as I’m 27.

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.
