Came Up With Fishing On The Fly

| Parents & Guardians

(I am in high school, and am about to go spend a weekend down at the beach drinking with friends. My mother is very anti-alcohol, but also has a tendency to assume people are innocent. It is also pouring with rain outside and very chilly.)

Me: “Alright, I am off.”

Mom: “What are y’all going to do down there anyway?”

Me: *nervously* “Uh we are going to go fishing.”

Mom: *cheerfully* “Oh okay, have fun!”

(Mom leaves the room.)

Dad: “Really? Fishing? That was the best you could come up with?”
