Dog house

One day I came home and asked my mom where my sister was.

My mom replied – she went to the dog house.

Two Thoughts came to my mind:

1. As much as my sister loves dogs, we don’t have a dog since my mom doesn’t want one in the house – so there’s no way that we have a dog house.

2. Maybe my mom’s English improved and she meant the dog house in the slang sense such that my sister did something bad and got “sent to the doghouse” or punished for something.

Turns out that my sister  went to volunteer at the dog shelter…

Oh mom….I thought your English has soared to now include slangs!

Why isn’t she picking up her phone?

My dad had to go to the restaurant first to go see if there were seats available while my aunt stayed with my grandpa at home to wait for his call.

Since he didn’t have a cellphone, he borrowed my aunt’s phone to call her once he finds out.

He got to the restaurant and started calling my aunt – he kept on trying my aunt on her cellphone and called many times, only to continue to get her voicemail…

After about 3 minutes, he realized that he was calling from my aunt’s cell phone…to try and reach her on the very phone that he’s holding on to
