My mom and I ran to Walmart tonight to pick up just a few things, and as is always the case, we ended up standing in line for a longer period of time than it took us to drive to the store and grab what we wanted. I decided to amuse myself by making up stories about the people with us in line and relating them to my mother sotto voce. We were vastly amused with ourselves.
The young man standing right in front of us was holding a Snow White DVD. I told my mom that he was purchasing the movie for his little niece, Angela. When we got to the front of the line, at long last, our bodies practically having wasted away to skeletal remains, my mom said to the young man, "So, are you buying that movie for your niece, Angela?"
He gave her the strangest look. "No, I'm buying it for my sister Angela."
"You're kidding me, right?" my mom said. "Your sister's name is Angela?"
"Yeah," he said, and scurried away.
I should start a psychic hotline ...
