A Conversation with Mum That’s a Bit Daft

Mum:    There is something wrong with this chocolate.

Me:        Is it stale?  Does chocolate go stale?

Mum:    I don’t think it’s stale.  It bites you.

Me:        Is it chilli chocolate?

Mum:    No it’s plain old Cadburys.

Me:        Well don’t eat it then.

Mum:    I just felt like a piece.  Why do you think it did that?

Me:        What?

Mum:    Made noises in my mouth?

Me:        What?

Mum:    It made noises in my mouth, it was very strange.

Me:       The chocolate made noises in your mouth.

Mum:    Don’t say it like you think I’m stupid.

Me:        You did sent me a text for no reason this morning saying you were a bit daft today.

Mum:    There must’ve been a reason

Me:        I’m afraid to ask.

Mum:    You didn’t ask.

Me:        Told you.

Mum:    About this chocolate, it’s strange.

Me:        What does it say on the packet?  Wait is this the school fundraiser chocolate?

Mum:    Yes.

Me:        Popping rocks.

Mum:    I didn’t think you were watching that dance show.

Me:        It’s not a dance move.

Mum:    It sounds like a dance move.  Like hip hop.

Me:        Ohh listen to you.

Mum:    Be quiet.

Me:        It’s a candy called popping rocks. Does the packet say Marvellous Creations Jelly Popping Candy Beanies?

Mum:    How did you know that?

Me:        I had to buy it too.  So that noise in your mouth is popping candy.

Mum:    What inside the chocolate there is a thing called popping candy.

Me:        Yes.

Mum:    Most peculiar.

Me:        Yes it is

Mum:    I thought I was having a turn.  If you tell me that’s why I’m daft I’ll make you fix my Kindle.
