Me: Happy Thanksgiving.
Mother: Happy Thanksgiving. So are you guys at your in-laws?
Me: Yes, of course. We're spending in there.
Mother: So you're returning on Monday right? So B's new job is closer to your home right?
Me: No, we're returning on Sunday. B's new job is closer to his parents' home actually.
Mother: Oh so you'll return on Monday right?
Me: No, I have a job and it's on Monday. And B drives, whereas I take the train.
Mother: Oh, I FORGOT that you actually have a job. I was just thinking about your husband's meals being tended to.
Me: OMG. Really? His meals??! (At this point, I'm making faces at B who is sitting next to me, while I'm on the phone.)
