Me: Did your ribs hurt when you were losing weight? Mine are killing me.
Ma Smash: No, but yours did that before, remember.
Me: Yeah, that’s right, they did. I forgot about that.
Ma Smash: And your sister’s did this time, too.
Me: Right. And I think Dad said something about that, as well.
Ma Smash: But not me. Nope. Must be your weird Hubley ribs.
Me: They are pretty weird. I have an extra one, you know. And an extra vertebra.
Ma Smash: (Cheerfully.) Yup. You’re a mutant!
