Mom: “So, are you picking up [Friend #1] at the airport?”

Sister: *to Mom* “You and Dad better not move and not tell us where!”

Me: “Yep. They’ve done it again, actually. That’s why [Friend #3] is the only one staying down here Friday night.”

Mom: “Really? Where’d they move to?”

Me: “…We don’t know. That’s the point.”

Mom: “Oh…”
