A Conversation with Mum that’s – Don’t Ask

Mum:  Do you have Ask?

Me:      What’s ask?

Mum:  You know on your computer.

Me:      Ask on my computer.

Mum:  Yes.

Me:      Tell me what Ask does.

Mum:  I don’t know what it does.  I don’t want it, it’s just there.

Me:      This is new then.

Mum:  I didn’t ask for it but I certainly got it.

Me:      Ask.

Mum:  Ask. So you know what it is then?

Me:      No idea.  Hang on.  Is it

Mum:  It’s a box on the screen.

Me:      You downloaded something didn’t you?

Mum:  No, you told me I’m not allowed to do that.

Me:      You downloaded something.

Mum:  No.

Me:      You downloaded.

Mum:  No.

Me:      Mum.

Mum:  I didn’t do anything.

Me:      Audible out breath.

Mum:  Well, yes I did download a thing for the movie times, but it wasn’t any good.

Me:      Oh, gawd.

Mum:  Can you get rid of it?

Me:      I can get rid of it.

Mum:  How did it get there?

Me:      You downloaded it.

Mum:  I didn’t.

Me:      I think we can safely say you did, but I’ll let you off the hook this time.

Mum:  Like don’t ask no questions and I’ll tell you no lies.

Me:      Not really.

Mum:  How did I get it again?

Me:      You downloaded it

Mum:  I didn’t.  I did.

Me:      It’s a sneaky one, you didn’t mean to download it which is why you’re not allow to…

Mum:  Ask.

Me:      Download.

Mum:  Ask not what your country can do for you, just ask your daughter to download things, because you’re not allowed to.

Me:      Ask me how annoying you’re being.

Mum:  Don’t ask, don’t tell.
