overheard on my telephone:
thomas: she’s out in the living room, and he’s watching television
me: who died?
thomas: nobody died
me: then who’s funeral did she go to?
thomas: mommy, have you lost it?
me: what do you mean?
thomas: nobody went to a funeral
me: you said that’s where kathy’s gone off to
thomas: no. i said she’s out in the living room. i never said anybody’d gone to no funeral.
