Mom: So is he famous or something?
Me: He's Wil Wheaton.
Mom: And he beat this other guy up when he was little?
Me: No, he didn't show up for a Star Trek convention. Do you know who Wil Wheaton is?
Mom: No. A Star Wars guy?
Me: He played Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Mom: Okay, now I understand.
Me: You don't know who Wesley Crusher is, do you?
Mom: Well, no, but I wanted you to stop telling me.
Mom: Alright, you can go ahead and tell me.
Me: Okay, so Captain Picard...
Mom: Just wait a minute while I turn off my hearing aid.
Me: You are so mean.
Mom: I didn't know that. Tell me more.
