Me: I think Barack Obama should be our next president.
Ma Smash: You think Eric Bana should be our next president?
Me: No! Barack Obama! Barack Obama!
Ma Smash: I know you love him, Jennie, but do you really think he knows enough about American politics? He’s Australian. Also, they’d have to amend the Constitution.
Me: Mum. BAR-ACK. OH. BAH. MA. Do you know who that is?
Ma Smash: Oh! I thought you said Eric Bana.
Ma Smash: Well, I have no idea who that is.
Ma Smash: But I’m glad you didn’t say Eric Bana. I don’t think that would work.
Ma Smash: Hello? Sweetheart?

How sweet would that be?
