Mom was planning to be out the whole day today. We’re working on an anthology of stories for someone, and a reading session was scheduled. I am at work, so Dad would be on his own. Which is not so much a problem, but we wondered if he would be all right on his own.
Mom: “Will you be all right on your own tomorrow? Food, etc.?”
Dad *puffs out his chest, and preens a little*: “No! I will need security!”
Mom *with a completely straight face*: “Oh. I was thinking more along the lines of a babysitter.”
I have such awesomely silly parents.
