MOTHER: Well, I think Alan Jones …
ME: Alan Joyce.
MOTHER: Well, whatever the little Irishman is called.
ME: I think Aled Jones is Welsh.
MOTHER: What does Aled Jones have to do with it?
ME: About as much as Alan Jones.
MOTHER: I didn’t say Alan Jones. I said Alan Joyce!
ME: You did not!
MOTHER: I did!
ME: You said Alan Jones. I said Alan Joyce. And you said, “Well, whatever the little Irishman is called.” And now you’re deliberately ret-conning this conversation while we’re still having it.
MOTHER: Yes, I am.
