**As we’re trying to settle on one new head shot**
Me: Okay, there’s a red heart beside the ones I like best.
Mom: How come there are no hearts on the ones with you in pink?
Me: Uh, because I didn’t like them best.
Mom: I like 8739.
Me: **Scrolling through photos** Wait. That’s me in pink.
Me: Do you see a heart beside it?
Me: Why are you picking it then?
Mom: I’m not supposed to do that?
Me: **Wondering if she’s screwing with me because I can’t come home for Mother’s Day** Uh, no. You’re not supposed to. Pick one with the heart.
Mom: Oh. Okay.
Mom: I like 8732.
Me: Do you see a heart?
Mom: I like 8730.
Me: THERE’S NO HEART ON THAT ONE, EITHER!
Mom: But I like it.
Me: Pick. One. With. The. Heart.
**I wait. TENSELY.**
Mom: I like 8733.
Me: Is. There. A. Heart. On. That. One?
**Me, realizing she’s enjoying this way too much……..**
