“Hey mom, what did you do today?”
“I went with some friends to a quilt show, then we went to the fabric store.”
“Did you find any good fabrics?”
“Yes. While my friends and I were there, a man came in with his wife and everyone in the store noticed that he was wearing a gun under his jacket. They were all staring at him and looking worried. Then he pulled out his wallet and showed everyone his license to carry a concealed weapon.”
“Wow, that must have been a little nerve wracking.”
“Well, you know what I did then?”
“Oh God mom, you didn’t.”
“Yes, I did. I took MY wallet out and showed him MY license to carry a concealed weapon.”
“Lord, I thought you were going to tell me you whipped out your gun.”
“Kelly, don’t be ridiculous, I wouldn’t pull out a gun. I just didn’t want him to think he was the only person in the quilt store with a license to carry a gun.”
“Good grief, a show down at the quilt store. What’s next Mom?”
“Don’t get smart with me Kelly, I’m still your mother.”
“Mom, you know this conversation is going on my blog, right?”
