I was listening to some music one night and my Mum said, ‘who’s that?’
‘Lyle Lovett’, I said.
She said, ‘yeah, but who is it?’
‘Lyle Lovett’, I repeated
‘That’s nice but who is it?’
Is she having trouble hearing me, I thought, or has she lost her mind. I’m sure she thought I’d lost mine. This went on for quite some time until I realised she thought ‘I was saying ‘I love it’ not Lyle Lovett!
My Dad was just sitting there laughing. Dads know these things. 🙂
