Bet you didn't know that about me,did ya???
So the conversation goes like this:
Mom: I have a big problem.
glen: oh, oh....what is this big problem you have?
Mom: I don't have any pajamas to sleep in tonight.
glen: Well, you slept in pajamas last night.
Mom: Yes, but I don't have them now.
glen: well, where did they go?
Mom: I packed them up and brought them somewhere.
Mom: That is the problem. I don't know where I brought them to. It might be one place, but then it might be another. I just don't know. But I do know, they are not here.
glen: OK. When did you do this?
Mom: Early this morning.
glen: When we left this morning you didn't bring anything with you.
Mom: I didn't?
glen: Nope. So they must still be here.
Mom: In this house?
glen: Yep. In this house. Do you want me to come help you find them?
Mom: excited now..........Yes, can you?
glen: Of course.
(we walk down the hall to the bathroom off the guest room, where her pajamas are hanging on the peg.)
glen: are these what you wanted to wear tonight?
Mom: Yes......is that where they were?
Mom: You can solve just about any problem, can't you?
glen: can you tell Carrie that? Or how about Frank?
Mom: ha ha ha. (she still knows a good joke when she hears one!)
about 5 minutes later.........
Mom is standing in the middle of the hallway, just standing there.
glen: did you need something else? Can I help you with something?
Mom: well, I was going to do the thing, but it is not something I can do without the stuff to do it with. Did you know that?
glen: maybe, I am not really sure. Were you going to put on your pajamas?
Mom: yes, I guess I can do that while I get the stuff going on the other thing.
Mom: see, you can solve all the problems. Does Frank know that?
glen: probably not. You should tell him.
