Mom: What are you doing?
Mom: Waiting for what?
Me: The pot to boil for the pasta.
Mom: You know a watched pot never boils right?
Me: How hungry are you?
Mom: hungry, why?
Me: Because if you aren’t starving I’m going to test that theory out.
Mom: I don’t know about you. You come up with the strangest stuff I’ve ever heard.
We both laugh… I never did test the watched pot theory out. I ended up standing next to the kitchen chair she was in and watched her play on her tablet and a few minutes later the water was boiling. Just to let you know the spaghetti was delicious!
