Mom: "I identify as asparagus"
Pause. Mom turns to me
Mom: "What do you identify as?"
Me, trying to think of a silly object but failing: "Oh god, no clue"
Mom: "Ah, yes! Whats that called again?"
Me: "what... do you mean?"
Mom: "When you're in between or whatever"
Me: "... you mean nonbinary...?"
Mom: "yes! Thats it! Thats good to know! Isnt there a cooler word for that tho-" goes on trying to think of a better word for it as if she didnt just... do that
