My mom calls me while I'm at work and says, "Hey do you have plans tonight?"

"No." This is probably the worst answer I can give, because saying "No I don't have plans," is akin to saying "Sure, I can be your slave for the day. What can I do for you first?"
I really need to have other answers prepared. But I don't.

"Oh great. I was wondering if you'd like to go with me to..."

And in my head, I'm thinking: Is she going to take me to dinner? Or one of her spontaneous shopping sprees?  Or maybe just a movie... 

"Forest Lawn Mortuary? My coworker Burt died."


I really should let her finish her sentences before I let my mind wander like that.
