Playing With Fire

| Related | March 15, 2012

(My stepmom is on the phone, and I can’t get her attention to tell her the pan is on fire. I have also just been told not to talk so loudly so I’ve been speaking in monotone.)

Me: “Mom.”

Mom: *on the phone* “…no she’s doing fine…”

Me: “Mom.”

Mom: *on the phone* “…she’ll be walking soon…”

Me: “Mom.”

Mom: *into the phone* “Just a second…” *to me* “I’m on the phone.”

Me: *points calmly behind her* “Fire.”

Mom: *screams*

(To this day, if a family member needs her attention, they say ‘fire’ in monotone.)
