The Return of Dippy Mother

February 17, 2006

It’s been a while since my last Dippy Mother post. So after a particually funny phone conversation with her this afternoon I have these gems to share.

DM: I watched those Brit Awards last night. Thought I would try and be a bit modern.
Fairy: Oh, right.
DM: I didn’t like any of the music.

On the subject of boyfriend:

DM: So tell me about him.
Fairy: What?
DM: How tall is he?
Fairy: About the same height as Brother.
DM: Skinny?
Fairy: About the same build as Brother.
DM: Does he look like him then?
Fairy: Eugh, NO!
DM: Does he wear glasses?
Fairy: Yes.
DM: I knew it!
Fairy: How?
DM: Does he drive a car?
Fairy: Yes
DM: Oh good. I just had a feeling about the glasses.

Later on:

Fairy: So we might come and visit at Easter.
DM: Oh no.
Fairy: Why not?
DM: Well he sounds really nice. You don’t want to scare him off. Have you told him about your dysfunctional family?

And finally:

DM: Does he like music?
Fairy: Um..yes?
DM: Good because anyone that goes with you should like music because you do.

I swear it is no wonder I am the way that I am.

Have a tip-top weekend folks!
