Me: You're still awake.
Jeff: I was watching the World Series.
Me: Is it over?
Me: Like, totally over?
Me: Who won?
Jeff: The Giants.
Me: Who did they beat?
Jeff: You don't know who was playing??
Me: (smiling) No.
Me: Ummm, the Mets?
Jeff: (smiling) No.
Me: Ummm, the Yankees?
Jeff: (smiling more) No.
Me: The A's?
Me: I'm running out of teams! The Cardinals? The Red Sox?
Jeff: (laughing now) No!
Me: Orioles! Mariners!
By this time, Jake had come in and was also enjoying the fact that his mom had no idea who was playing in the World Series. (So I happen to dislike baseball. It's not a crime). Being the sweet, loving son that he (usually) is, he gave me a hint.
Jake: Mom, they come from the land of cars.
Mom: (thinking fast) Detroit!
Jeff: (smiling) Detroit what??
Mom: Well, I know it's not the Pistons 'cause they're NBA.
Right then, the post-game show came on, so I looked over at the tv and waited to see the name of the teams.
Me: Aha! Tigers! (Thank you FOX TV, for saving my butt.)
Jake: So, Mom. Who is Detroit's football team??
Me: (thinking fast...thinking animals) Lions!
Jake: Way to go, Mom. (high five)
I managed to redeem myself a little with that one. :)
