My mom and I were standing in the kitchen talking yesterday when she suddenly got a confused look on her face. She ran her hands over the counter, then lifted the coffee cup and stared at the bottom of it for a minute.

Mom: Am I leaking somewhere?

Me: You know, I think you are!

Mom looked from the coffee cup to the counter a couple more times trying to find the source of the leak…

Mom: But where?!

I reached over and dabbed at her ear with my sleeve.

Me: You’ll want to get this stopped… I mean, you don’t want to lose any more than you already have.

Mom: Get what stopped? Lose more of what?!

Me: … Brains, mother. Looks like you’re leaking brains.

Mom: …

Me: Seriously, I’d see a doctor about that.
