My gift to mothers of the world with teenaged and twenty-something sons… Common phrases in the mother-son conversation. Part one.
Hi Mom…(translation) Hi Mom.
How’s it going?…How are you?
What are you up to? … Are you home? If not, will you be home later?
What have you been doing?…Have you been grocery shopping?
I thought I’d come over…Is there food?
What are you doing tonight? … Can I borrow the car?
Can I borrow the car?….Did you fill up recently?
Have you seen my (fill in team name) jersey?…Did you find the jersey I rolled into a ball and stuffed behind the sofa cushions and if so, did you wash it?
