So we finished dinner and we're all just talking about random stuff. My dad and I are sitting, and my mom is at the kitchen doorway. She is about to head into the hall after my dad gave her playful grief about something, she says, "I need a vacation... far, far away". All in good humor of course.
So I pipe in and say, with a big, cheesy grin plastered, "How about to Alaska?"
Me: But then you could be with Sarah Palin! *even bigger, cheesy grin*
*gasps* You could hunt together!! *nods enthusiastically*
Mom: *dirty look* I'm menopausal. Do you REALLY want to put a gun in my hand?
Me: *without hesitation* YUP!
Mom: The only thing I would be hunting is HER!
We all crack up at that. My mom leaves to go to her sewing room. Meanwhile my dad and I start up a scenario...
Dad: So I haven't seen your wife for a few days...
Me: Yes, she went on vacation to Alaska to hunt
Dad: Oh, what does she hunt?
Me: *another cheeky grin* Big game!
Then we start cracking up again, and I go to my mom to tell her our little scene... to which I receive a funny glare and an order to do my homework, which I don't start for another half hour
