Unraveling threads

Me: Hi mom, just thought I'd call, since one call lasts you for longer than an email...
Mom: Very good reason.
[random chit chat]
Me: Listen, you guys need to get me some stuff the next time you come around - a nice persian rug and some good quality linen, atleast 300+ thread count, ought to be cheaper there.
Mom: Okie, will look around here.
Me: Don't get those floral patterns you usually buy, some solid colors, pastels, dark greys...
Mom: How does it matter ? Anyway it is for your bedroom only no...
Me: Ummm...
Mom: Its not like you have company and need to impress people there... ha ha ha...
Me: Ummm...
Mom: [uneasy silence] Why aren't you saying anything...
Me: You know what, forget the linen, just get the rug.
Mom: Ayyooo ! What are you saying !

Right, so moral of the story is: Don't ask a question to which you know you won't like the answer to.

So much to blog about, so little time...
