Mom & Dad-isms

I drove my brother, mom, and dad to dinner this evening for their anniversary. We reached a stoplight and we all noticed a huge gopher on someone's lawn. 

Mom: Look! It's a raccoon!

Dad: No. It's a huge rat. 

Brother: It's a gopher. 

Mom: No, Dad, it's a raccoon. 

Dad: It's a rat!

(this repeats for about a solid minute)

Brother: It's a gopher. 

Dad: That's what I said. 

Happy 27th Anniversary,  Mom & Dad. I love you both and hope to find a love like yours one day also.
