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.
