Mom: "Now, you can't work all this week. I want to play backgammon or Skip-bo or screw-your-neighbor this week."
Me: [pause] "What was that last one?"
Mom: "Screw-your-neighbor. The game with the marbles."
Me: "I have no idea what you're talking about. And I'm pretty sure I don't want to know."
Mom: "Don't be an idiot. That game with the big marble board and the marbles and the dice! You get to land on people and send them back. Screw-your-neighbor!"
Me: "I think you're talking about Aggravation."
Mom: "Aggravation? It's called Aggravation?!"
Mom: "Well, screw-your-neighbor sounds more fun. I'm going to call it that."
Me: "Not in public, please."
Mom: "You are so uptight! Who wouldn't want to play screw-your-neighbor?"
Me: "Depends on the neighbor, I guess."
Mom: "I know which one I'd like to [inappropriate material deleted] and his cute little [even more inappropriate material deleted] and ice cream!"
Me: "I can't believe you just said that. What's wrong with a nice game of gin rummy?"
Mom: "You get ice cream on the cards. So do you want to play aggravate-the-screwed-neighbor now?"
Me: "I'm telling my sister on you."
There is, in fact, a card game called "Screw Your Neighbor." It's not the game Mom's talking about, but it does exist: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranter-Go-Round. Mom is vindicated.
Thanks to the eight people who e-mailed me with this information. I'm worried about all of you.
