Mom: What is in that big bag in the backseat?
Me: Oh! Extra wrapping papers that Cate let me keep! I can wrap pottery in them. She just gave them to me. I like this Cate.
Me: Wrapping papers.
Mom: Oh. I thought it was a person's head.
Me: A what?
Mom: I thought you might have cut off someone's head and wrapped it up on the backseat.
Me: I do not know what to say to that.
Mom: Well, I was going to warn you that if it's a head, it's going to start to smell, especially in this heat, so you should get it out of the car pretty soon.
Me: I appreciate the advice.
Mom: You know that if it was a head, you'd let it stink up the car. And I will not allow that.
Me: That's a pretty big bag for just a head.
Mom: It could be other body parts. You never know with you.
Me: I have never put any severed body parts of any kind in this car, Mom.
Mom: Well, you never know. Just remember what I said about the smell.
Me: I don't believe that I will ever forget.
Mom: That's a good girl.
