Viva Los Vega Mum Style (that’s not a typo)
Mum: It’s only me. My vega is broken.
Me: Your what?
Mum: My vega.
Me: Did you say vega?
Mum: Yes, you know what that is.
Me: Um, no.
Mum: Yes, you do.
Me: Your V.E.G.A?
Mum: That’s what I said.
Me: What does your vega do?
Mum: Well, nothing at the moment.
Me: Tell me more.
Mum: That’s what it says in the screen. Vega.
Me: Are you on a website?
Mum: I wish I was. It’s the vega not working.
Me: Alright, turn everything off and turn it all back on again.
Mum: Okay. Right, it’s back on and there’s the vega again. It’s stuffed. I need a new computer.
Me: That’s what you see on the screen. Anything else?
Mum: Little blocks of colour.
Me: Does is say VGA?
Mum: That’s what I said vega.
Me: No e.
Mum: How else would you say it? So what do I do?
Me: I spelled it, oh never mind. Check the cord at the back of the monitor.
Mum: Is that the box?
Me: No, that’s the screen.
Mum: Oh, well look at that.
Me: What happened?
Mum: It’s not vega anymore.
Me: More than we can say for some people.
Mum: Don’t be smart. You’ll be old one day. You’re pretty old now.
Me: But I’m not yet vega.
Mum: Viva Los Vega. Goodbye.
