Mom (while making a meal plan in MacGourmet and sipping on a cup of coffee): "Captain, can you go ask Daddy if he has any meal requests for next week?"
Captain to Dad: "Daddy, Mom wants to know if you have any mail requests."
Dad: "Ummm. No, I don't have any mail requests."
Captain to Mom: "He said he doesn't have any mail."
Mom: "No, does he have any MEAL requests?"
Captain to Dad: "Mom, meant MEAL requests. It's hard to understand her when she's drinking..."
