So I was supposed to go back to Georgia next week to help my parents after my dad’s hip replacement. Turns out the trip is being postponed because my dad’s surgeon had to have an emergency appendectomy over the weekend.
I was talking to my mom about the change of plans, and my dad was in the background:
Dad – Tell her we’ll cover the cost of the flight if she has to change it.
Me – I got trip insurance. Dad was on the phone with me when I booked it. He suggested the insurance.
Mom – She got the insurance.
Dad – (muttering)
Mom – He thought that was just for if the plane crashed.
Me – WHAT?!?!? What the hell good would THAT do me????
Mom – Hahahahaha!!!!
Me – THANKS, DAD.
Mom – Well, you know, that might be a good kind of thing to get too.
