A conversation with Mum that’s not about fruit

Mum:   What’s an apple?
Me:       Strange question. Ask that a different way maybe.
Mum:   People talk about them. Do I need one?
Me:       An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Mum:   Not those kind of apples.
Me:       Not the fruit salad kind?
Mum:   No, another kind.
Me:       Are you talking about fruit?
Mum:   There’s fruit ninja.
Me:       Yes, there is, that’s a game. What do you want to know?
Mum:   If I need an apple.
Me:       No.
Mum:  You’re just saying that.
Me:       What do you want me to say?
Mum:   I don’t want you to say anything. I want you to tell me if I need one for my phone.
Me:       You have a Nokia.
Mum:   Yes, do I need an apple on it?
Me:       That’s a different brand. Wait, what? Why do you think you might?
Mum:   Oh you know, to do different things.
Me:       An app. You mean an app, not an apple.
Mum:   App, apple, same thing.
Me:       Not even close.
Mum:   It’s all fruits salad to me.
