Short visit with son, briefly home from his latest college campus:
son: "Hi, Mom! Short visit, I just need to get a shower and I'm off for the Officer Candidate School's Combat Fitness Test, then it's back to campus for a Very Important Football Game I'm playing in. [shower] Okay, Mom, I'm off, I'll be back on the 20th."
mom: "Why the 20th?"
son: "There's a military ball at Tech, and I'm taking this girl."
mom: "What girl? Is it that crazy girl?" [from earlier conversation]
son: "What crazy girl? Oh, her. Wow, she's seriously crazy. She's in [a southern town] now."
mom: "In a facility?"
son: [laughing] "No, Mom, at school!"
Son leaves and Mother realizes that she never found out who the dance girl is.
