"Why did the mother cross the road?"
A: "To get some peace and quiet."
When my sister's family and mine get together at my mom's on a Sunday, we're a noisy group. There's constant chatter, the television is blaring with the latest hockey, soccer, football game on, and one of us thinks we all are hard of hearing so she shouts everything.
When we're ready to leave, Mom always says, "It's going to be so quiet after you all go."
We're not sure she's saying it with regret or with relief!
