Mum: How’s the new job going?
Mum: Tell me something about it!
Me: Today I wrote a 30-second radio spot.
Mum: Wonderful! Did I ever tell you I used to write for radio?
Mum: I wrote a jingle for Mr Tickety’s Farm Hire. Mr Tickety’s a friend to you… Mr Tickety’s a friend to meeeeee….
Me: Please don’t sing it.
Mum: That was back when I was teaching in Moree.
Me: What station was it? One-oh-four-point-middle-of-fucking-nowhere? Redneck FM?
Mum: Don’t laugh at her, she’s nasty.
