AK: She called on the house phone? That’s weird.
Me: No. She called on your phone.
AK: Oh My God, Mom! You answered my phone?
Me: Of course, I did. I heard it ring, so I answered it.
AK: Mom! Please don’t answer my phone. That’s so embarrassing!
Me: What’s embarrassing?
AK: You…answering my phone…is completely embarrassing! Oh My God…what did you even say?
Me: Well, let’s see. First, I said, “Hello?” Then, I said, “How are you?” And then, I told her how in kindergarten, you’d cry if you didn’t get to sit on the pink carpet square. Oh, and about that one time in First Grade when you accidentally wet your pants, but that’s all I said. I swear.
AK: Oh My God, Mom! That’s not even funny.
Me: C’mon, you have to admit it’s a little funny, but honestly, all I said was, “Hello?” I promise.
AK: You’re so embarrassing.
Me: Thank you. Now, please go to school or I’m going to have to drive you in my bathrobe and we all know how embarrassing that can be.
