such pretty eyes

Me: I saw Wolverine this weekend.
Mom: Oh, I don't know why you would go to that. The trailers are so loud.
Me: It was ok.
Mom: What is it, he's supposed to be a good guy, but it's like he has scissor hands?
Me: ha!
Mom: What's he like? 'I'm a good guy?' Scrape! Scrape?
Me: ha! ha!
Mom: He has those pretty eyes and then, what is it? He has scissor hands? And they cut through anything? A person? An airplane?
Me: ha!
Mom: And it's scrape! Scrape?
Me: Mom, that's hilarious, because, you know why? In the comic book, his hands make a noise like "Snikt! Snikt!"
Mom: Oh, snick? snick!
Me: ha! ha!
Mom: Well, Bud's been killing all sorts of animals and dragging them up on the porch. He left the head and tail of a chipmunk and I kept throwing it out in the woods and he kept bring it back.
Me: Gross! What was it like?
Mom: Oh, it wasn't that bad, he'd eaten almost everything. It was like... snick!

Bud (he's a cat)..he's also discusting (sp)! And then he wants to get in your face! YUK!

Is Bud the really fluffy one? Seems like he wouldn't be a killer. That is funny!

Thank you for this great laugh during this very stressful morning at work. I've had some coffee, some pastry, this laugh and now I can face the masses again!

Yeah, I've got to say, there are few things with so much comic potential as the interactions of mothers and their adult daughters. Sounds VERY much like my Mom and myself.
