Scene: Watching Love it or List it with mum.
TV: Having a powder room on the ground floor is non-negotiable.
Me: What the heck is a powder room?
Mum: It’s the room around the corner, with a toilet and sink only.
Me: Why don’t they call it what it is then?
Mum: Well I guess because women mostly use it to do their make up. I mean what would you like them to call it, the pooping room?
Mum: Isn’t today Dark Friday?
Me: Black! Black Friday!
Mod note: I cant believe I’ve never shared this one. This happened when Blackberry phones first came out, and they were at the height of their popularity.
Mum: What is a Blackberry?
Me: Its a cell phone.
Mum: What kind of stupid name is that? Why Blackberry? Why not Blueberry or Wiener?
Me: Oh yeah mom, Wiener would go over real well. Can you just see some guy at an office saying to his female coworker “Hey wanna see my wiener?”
