Me: So to brine a turkey, you soak it for twelve hours in salt water?
Mom: Yes, that's right.
Mom: Because it makes it moist and delicious!
Mom: I don't know what you're thinking, but I know it's something stupid.
Me: No, it's not!
Mom: Yes, it is. Go ahead: what are you thinking?
Me: I'm wondering if this is why sharks eat surfers.
Mom: There is something seriously wrong with you.
