Mom: You never told me about that new book you talked about on your blog.
Me: 50 Burning Questions? Yes I did.
Mom: No. I’ve never heard of it before.
Me: I’m sure I told you.
Me: It’s the one that’s like Burn, except for younger kids. And there’s going to be illustrations.
Mom: Oh right, that one.
And then, thirty seconds later:
Mom: You didn’t give me a copy of your last book.
Me: The new edition of Canadian Girls? I didn’t?
Mom: Oh, wait. Maybe you did. Can you bring me another one?
At least she’s a fan, right?
