Tea for Two and Two for Tea
A few weeks ago when my mom was over at my place, I served her some lemongrass tea (which, by the way, I totally recommend. Not that you all have to serve it to your mothers, but you should at least try it). She enjoyed it so much that I decided to get her a little box of her own.
When I gave it to her, the following conversation ensued:
ME: (holding box behind back) I got you something.
MOM: You did?
ME: Yes. Do you want me to give it to you?
MOM: Sure. (extends her cheek for a kiss)
ME: No, mom. I actually GOT you SOMETHING. (extends box of tea)
MOM: Oh! Thank you! But... (in horror) You spent MONEY on me.
ME: No. I stole it.
MOM: Oh, good.
