Annie Duke is getting married

So I'm eating lunch, reading the link Waffles sent about how Annie Duke is engaged and I decide to give my mother a call.  Please to enjoy!

Me: "Hi Ma!"
Mom: "Jo!!!  You calling me from work?"
Me: "Yeah, I'm just eating lunch and reading an article my friend Waffles sent me.  It says Annie Duke is getting married."
Mom: "Reeeeaaaaalllllly??? You sure?"
Me: "That's what it says.  It says the guy put her ring in the bottom of her stocking on Christmas morning."
Mom: "But the man asked her on TV she said she NEVER get married again."
Me: "Yeah, it says she was surprised.  She wasn't expecting it but she said yes."
Mom: "How old is she?  She about your age, right?"
Me: "She's 45 and I'm 44.  I'm younger!!!"
Mom: "Madonna mia, you're old.  I thought you were 43."
Me: "Nope, but I'm younger than Annie Duke!"
Mom:  "Who is Waffle again?"
Me: "A poker guy.  He plays poker.
Mom: "At your house?"
Me: "No on the computer."  (There is no need to mention Full Tilt cuz that just confuses her)
Mom: "And he knows Annie Duke?"
Me: "NO! It was an article on the computer!"
Mom: "His name is Waffle?"
Me: "Waffles with an S.  It's a nickname."
Mom: "Nicknames, Ugh! You're supposed to call someone their name.  No nickname! So Annie Duke is getting married.  Nice! You sure???"

I left out her critique of my lunch, which was a weight watchers frozn dinner, as well as talk about her tax return.  The bottom line is Ma does NOT believe anyone should be eating frozen dinners and every tax question I answered got a "You sure?" response.

Man, I just bust a gut everytime I read these conversations you have with your mom.

LOL I'm glad. FWIW the recaps are pretty much verbatim too.

And if you do ever meet my mother, you'll be introduced as John. She'd prolly slap you if you told her your nickname was Lightning.

Are you kidding me? You had the inside scoop on ANNIE DUKE. You made her day!

Being named after a breakfast food does not usually get you instant cred (unless it is bacon). lol

I wouldn't get introduced to your Mom using my porn name?

Bayne, You could get away with it so long as you show up hungry. Mom feeds everyone. Repair men, the mailman, EVERYONE. Even some people here in work.
