MUM: Oh no, that's bad luck.
MUM: You can't have a photo with an odd number of people in it.
ME: Mom, that is completely ridiculous.
MUM: I didn't make up the saying. I'm just telling you what it is.
ME: So, I can't take a picture alone? You know one is an odd number.
ME: What about an only child? Can't he take a picture with his parents? No family portraits?
MUM: Hmph! I told you, I don't make up the saying.
ME: Mom, just cos it's the saying doesn't mean you should believe it.
MUM: *Shrugs shoulders* I just saying.
ME: Hmph! I thought you didn't make up the saying.
