Snippets of everyday conversation #20

The Female Parent (aka my  Mum):  "Sheila (recent new acquaintance of the family) thinks you're a very nice person".

Me:  "I am a very nice person.  Lot's of people think I'm perfectly charming" (can you tell I've recently been catching up with Downton Abbey?!).

The Female Parent:  "What do you mean?"

The Male Parent (aka my Dad):  *smirks*

Me:  "People generally think I'm ok, some think I'm quite lovely.  It's only you who tends not to".

The Male Parent;  *laughs heartily*

The Female Parent:  *assumes the look of mild indignance*  but doesn't contest my statement.

It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry really....
