It's going to be hard to explain why this is so great.

I just had a great phone conversation with my parents. I had called my dad in honor of Father's Day, but my mom got on the phone and started asking questions about my research this summer, during which my dad was bored out of his mind. Eventually, I start to sense that this is the case.

Lindsey: You know, over the phone it's not always easy to tell if you guys are bored out of your minds or not.
Mom: Well, we need to develop some sort of signal.
Lindsey: *laughing* Yeah. When you give the signal, I can stop talking about most general unifiers or whatever and start talking about, I don't know, the weather.
Mom: I think the signal needs to evoke eye-rolling.
Lindsey: *laughs harder*
Dad: Here's the 'signal': 'Shut the fuck up!'
Lindsey: *laughs uproariously*
Mom: *makes noises of mock exasperation*
Lindsey: Okay, that was awesome.

I love my parents so much. I'm so much their kid.
