In which a son texts his mother on Halloween

Sunday 10/31/21

C: Do you agree that I should get the neck tattoo?

M: WHAT????

C: Because I'm a Zulu warrior. We were talking about this. A tightly coiled fist, remember?

C: Or else a set of stairs.

C: Alluding to both the stairs I run and my ascent.

M: NO! I am not THAT forgetful! We NEVER talked about tattoos!

C: Not tattoos. Neck tattoo. Fist or stairs.

M: Neither

C: So you're saying you're not in the yes camp?

M: I am NOT in the yes camp!
