My Mother Versus The World

| Related | July 5, 2013

(I am working abroad in New Zealand, talking to my mom online in the USA.)

Mom: “Are there good beaches there? Do you visit them often?”

Me: “Well, there are some good beaches which I visited in the summer. Remember, I’m south of the equator, so even though it’s summer for you, it’s not summer for me.”

Mom: “Really? What season is it?”

Me: “… winter.”

Mom: “Wow!”

Me: “Because we’re on the opposite side of the equator, the seasons are opposite.”

Mom: “Wow! Wait, if it’s winter there now, how long is it until summer?”

Me: “Well, winter just started, so it’ll be about six months.”

Mom: “So long! Wow!”
