Following that, we had this IM exchange:
Evil Mother: look! it's my boy!
Z-man: no way
Evil Mother: lol. you are so adorable.
Evil Mother: that's ok... cuz i got a phone call from drama king today ... "i dont want to freak you out, but ..." so i immediately went into freakout mode
Z-man: he's straight now?
Too bad this took place at work, because I TOTALLY lost it and there was NO explaining the shower of Diet Coke that I had to clean off my computer.
