The Walking Dead

(My mother, brother and I are out having dinner when my mom starts sharing a story she heard on the news recently.)

Mom: “So, he ended up going right over Niagara Falls! But he walked out of the water a little while later!”

Me: *shocked* “Alive?!”

Brother: *sarcastically* “No, he walked out dead.”

(My parents have bought me a new game console for my birthday, and have hidden it in my grandmother’s room. My grandma is supposed to go shopping for the day, and so isn’t expecting anyone to be in her room. It is my birthday, so my parents push me to go inside. However, my grandma had gone back into her room without my parents noticing.)

Mom: “Now, make sure not to be too happy with what we got you.”

Dad: “You’ll be happy, but please don’t scream like you usually do.”

Me: *confused* “Okay?”

(I open the door, and my grandma is standing directly in front of me holding her glasses.)

Me: *sarcastically* “Oh, boy! You bought me grandma!”

Dad: “What the—what are you doing in here?!”

Grandma: “What do you mean?! This is my room!”

Dad: “But you were supposed to leave for the day!”

Grandma: “I forgot my glasses!”

Me: *still confused* “Wait, is grandma really the surprise?”

Et Tu, Vader?

(My family and I are Roman Catholic. We are also huge geeks. It is May 4th, and I text my mother.)

Me: “May the Fourth be with you!”

(An hour later, I receive a return text.)

Mom: “Et cum spiritu tuo.”

(This is grammatically correct Latin for “And also with you”. I have never tried to out-geek my mother again.)

Avoiding A Rough Patch

| London, England, UK | Romantic | October 18, 2012

(My boyfriend and I are walking through a very pretty park in London. ‘Kew’ is a very lovely park on the outskirts of London, but we are currently walking through a different park.)

Boyfriend: “This place is beautiful, just like you used to be.”

Me: “…what?”

Boyfriend: “I said it’s beautiful, just like Kew used to be.”

Me: “Oh. That makes more sense!”
