Mother: You should speak to your Godfather
Me: Ok. Any particular reason?
Mother: No, he'd just appreciate it
Me: Oh, ok. You just said it like there was an important reason
Mother: He asked you to ring him
Me: So there is an actual reason?
Mother: Well, no. He just asked
Me: Exactly - the reason is because he asked
Mother: Well....yes, yes - I suppose if you want to put it like that
Me: I'm not putting it like anything - You say 'speak to your Godfather' and the reason is because he's asked me to ring him...
Mother: ....in a manner of speaking...
Me: Ok. I will ring him.
Mother: Well not this week - then it looks like I've told you to ring!
