A Glass of Chianti

I missed the window of opportunity, clearly

Conversation with my mother this weekend:

Mom: "I was cleaning out the attic the other day and you'll never guess what I found."
Me: "Oh?"
Mom: "Yeah, do you remember those ALF puppets?"
Me: "Oh my goodness! I loved ALF. Those puppets were awesome."
Mom: "I thought you'd get a kick out of hearing about them."

Conversation with my mom this morning:
Me: "So, I was thinking about coming over to see those ALF puppets. Maybe I'll bring Coco."
Mom: "Oh. I got rid of them."
Me: "Ummmmm... Didn't you say that you found them this weekend?"
Mom: "Well, yeah, but I didn't think that we needed to keep them around. They were really old."

Moms are weird.
