Truly I am a witty bitch...

Head. Desk. It's magical.

Good job, Ma...

Here is an excerpt from a conversation I had with my mother last night...

Context: "Motumbe" is the name she gave to a paper mache (....how do you spell that...?) mask I made in grade school that she still has and loves very, very much in that way mothers love crappy art you did as a kid like no one else does.

Me: :says something charmingly insulting:

Her: Keep messing with me and Motumbe will shrink your head! Like that character in Beetlejuice.

Me: Oh, that's nice...you're going to let Motumbe hurt your child, whom you swear you never want to be hurt?

Her: He's not going to hurt you...just shrink your head.

Me: Well if he does it like the guy in Beetlejuice, not only will he hurt me, I'll be dead.

Her: You won't be dead! You'll just have a tiny head!

Me: .....Ma, the guy in Beetlejuice with the shrunken head? He was dead. That's why he was in the waiting room...

Her: He wasn't dead!....was he?

Me: .....YES, MA!

Her: Was he really?!

Me: YES! They all were! All the weird monster people were dead! That was sort of the whole POINT of the movie!

Her: (pause) ....Even Beetlejuice?

Me: ESPECIALLY Beetlejuice!

Her: Really?! Well I totally missed that! I had no idea!

Me: -_- (sighs)

Her: I'm going to have to rewatch that movie...I never got that.

You guys? My mom has seen Beetlejuice AT LEAST twenty times...and she wasn't aware it was a movie about dead people. I...I just don't even, you guys.
