[talking about a controversial thought over the phone and laughing happily]
Dad (D): You know, I’ve always liked listening to your story. Your absurd and controversial questions.
Mom (M): [grin from ear to ear]
D: You should write those things in your blog.
D: Why? It’s not like you have a lot of readers whatsoever.
M: That exactly is the reason! I don’t have a lot of readers, so, I have to make sure that they won’t leave me!
Your mom has awesome controversial thoughts, but she is also (awesomely) insecure, kids.
