Mom: Angelina Jolie? Who is that?
Me: She’s the beautiful actress who is married to Brad Pitt.
Mom: Oh, I love that movie about the river.
Me: “A River Runs Through It”? Yes, I love that movie too. The book is even better. It’s actually a short story in a book. I have it and I’ll bring it to you so you can read it.
Mom: Oh, yes, the book is often better than the movie. Brad Pitt—he’s my boyfriend. I have no idea what he sees in that woman. She has such puffy lips.
