My family *waves hands*

So, before dinner I was sitting with my family. My sister was telling us one of her friends got a job crushing rocks.

Sister: Blah blah. Big rocks, little rocks. Blah, blah.

Mom: Oh! There's this city!

Me: You're just trying to change the subject from rock crushing.

Mom: No! It's related. There's this city, Ber...

Me: Berlin?

Mom: No, it's a city in the desert.

Me: *thinks of Las Vegas and similar* There are famous cities in the desert that start with "Ber"?

Mom: Yes! You know! The city in the desert that starts with B!

Dad: Dubai?

Mom: Yes! That one! They're building a huge building there!

Me: *tries to relate that to rock crushing and admits that at least there was a B in the name...*

Oh Mom.

I love my mom, but sometimes she can be so hard to understand.

Actually, normally my sister and I are much better at understanding what my mom's saying than my dad. But today after that conversation he kept saying "Oh no! I've gone to the dark side!" because he caught her meaning first. :P

Hee. Your mom sounds like my mom. I still get confused sometimes by her random turns of conversation, but it's always amusing in the end.

What drives me more crazy than the random turns of conversation with my mom is that she often never finishes her sentences but thinks she has, so she'll get angry later because she "told" us something and we forgot.

Your mom sounds like me...
woe betide the uninitiated trying to follow one of my stories, with its pauses, inability to find nouns, and grasping hand gestures begging for someone to get it...!

*snicker*

Families can be quite amusing sometimes. And hey, go dad! Way for him to save the moment! ;)

*waves back* How you doing? Did you get your house things resolved?
Have you seen PM in Star Trek yet? :P

Yeah, the sad thing is, I can't really tease my mom too much, because I talk like that too sometimes.
