This is how good of a conversationalist I am

Guy: What do you blog about?

Me: My life.

Guy: Oh, is your life really interesting?

Me: No.

Phone conversations with my brother

I called home after work yesterday to talk to my mom and my brother answered the phone.

Brother: Hi Dominique, did you buy some Lucky Charms?

Me: No. Didn’t I just buy a family size box on Saturday?

Brother: Maybe.

Me: And you finished it already.

Brother: Yeah, it’s a small box.

Me: It’s family size, it’s supposed to last.

Brother: Not when two people are eating it.

Me: Who are the two people?

Brother: Me and Nicholas.

Me: But it’s supposed to be enough for a whole family, not just two people.

Brother: Oh well. It’s a small box. Anyways, what do you want?

Me: Is mom there?

Brother: I don’t know.

Me: What do you mean you don’t know?

Brother: (starts singing the Corner Gas them song “I don’t know, I just don’t know…”) Hey Nicholas, where’s mom?

Me: Is she there?

Brother: Not at the moment.

Me: Where is she?

Brother: I don’t know.

Me, Okay, can you ask her to call me?

Brother: Okay. (Starts singing The Littlest Hobo theme song “Maybe tomorrow…”)

Me: Okay, bye.

Later when my mom called me back, my brother picked up the other receiver and we could hear him whispering something as we talked. He was saying “Lucky Charms” repeatedly.

Apparently family size isn’t big enough for our family
