This funny exchange ensued in our emails back and forth to set plans in place:
KGB: I'm looking forward to another of our long talks, assuming I can get mom to bed at a reasonable hour. She's a real party animal...
OD: Who knows? Mom might have some interesting things to say, too!
KGB: That's what concerns me. ;-)
OD: It could be worse. I could bring my mom, too.
It really is too frightening to consider… (especially since I intend to find out whether he's avenged the Pope again any time recently...)
P.S. -- I'm seriously considering ordering one of these for him for his birthday. Heh!
