So at home with ze muzzer because of so many reasons that need not be explained. Watching TV. A promo for “Knight and Day”, Tom Cruise movie going on.
Mum: Oooh. (Cough) Look, Tom Hanks.
Me: (Sigh) That’s not Tom Hanks.
Mum: Oh. Tom Selleck?
Me: No, that’s Tom Cruise.
Mum: Oh. He’s the one who plays that dumb guy?
Me: What? What?
Mum: You know, that dumb guy. That guy who’s not right in the head.
Me (outraged because its so un PC but its my goddamn MOTHER): NO MOM. THAT’S Tom Hanks. This is Tom Cruise.
Mum: Huh. Who knew? I always get confused between them.
Me: (even more puzzled) Between Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise? HOW?
Mum: Tom – Tom. That’s why. It’s not like they have a name like Garrison.
Me: (mystified) Who’s Garrison?
Mum: You know, that guy. Who’s in that action movie. Garrison.
Me: (just shaking head)
Mum: Oh ho. Garrison. Garrison. GARRISON.
Me: Garrison what???
Mum: The Indiana Jones guy! Garrison FORD!
Me: (grinning like a silly fool) Oh. That Garrison.
Mum: Yeah. (sniffle)
