Pot Calling The Kettle Anything It Wants Because It’s Not Listening

(I am sorting through my possessions after returning from college, deciding which stays at home and which goes back.)

Me: “Now that I’m moving into a dorm with a nicer kitchen, maybe I should get new cooking supplies.”

Dad: *not really listening* “Sounds about right.”

Me: “Do you think I should get a little frying pan?”

Dad: *still not listening* “Maybe.”

Me: “I’ve already got a little pot.”

Dad: “Don’t advertise that around campus; you could lose your scholarship.”

(Long pause while we both parse the conversation in our brains.)

Dad: “I owe you an apology.”
