Life As A Play: Where Was I Yesterday?

By

Overheard at the dinner table [after a long silence]
Mom: Where was I yesterday?
Me & Rachael [glance at each other knowing what’s coming next]
Mom: Twine. Twine.
Me & Rach [smile]
Mom: I was somewhere and saw some twine.
Me & Rach [holding in the laughter]
Mom: For my flowers. I was somewhere where I saw twine for my flowers.
Me & Rach: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Mom: What? I was looking for twine for my flowers!
[long pause]
Mom: Where was I yesterday?
