“What movie are you watching?” the old woman asked, clearly seeing the title screen and introduction on the television.
“Oh, that was a good one,” she said as she sat on the couch. “I don’t like this opening.”
“Ha ha ha, that’s silly,” the old woman said just two minutes into the show. *cough* *cough*
The old woman got up from the couch and went to the kitchen for a drink of water. “Now, do I want a glass or a bottle?” she asked herself. “I like that actor. What’s his name again?”
“You know, that one.”
The young lady sighed and decided just to pick one. “Dan Aykroyd?”
“No, the other one.” The old woman opted for a glass of milk instead and returned to the couch. “That one.”
“That’s Dan Aykroyd.”
“No, the other one is Dan Aykroyd. Isn’t it?”
“No. Can we please just watch the movie.”
“I’m not stopping you from watching the movie.”
The young lady sighed and shook her head. “Uh-huh.”
This continued for the next hour until a bright light suddenly filled the room and blinded the two women. When the light subsided, the old woman was gone.
“Mom?” the young lady asked. “MOM!”
Nothing. She searched through the house in a panic then realized the house was quiet. Peacefully quiet. She sat back down on the couch and picked out a different movie. Less than an hour later, a bright light filled the room again and quickly subsided.
“Now what are you watching?
The young lady screamed. Her mother was now sitting on the couch again, but there was a note attached to the back of her blue cardigan, which read: She never shut up! We are giving her back to you! That is punishment enough.
The young lady sighed and resigned herself to never watching a movie in peace and quiet again.
