I washed the blankets from Mom's bed today. Here's the conversation.
Me: Would you go put this blanket on your bed?
Mom: On MY bed?
Me: Yes, please.
Me: Yes, please.
Me: Mom? Can you put the blankets on your bed?
Mom: Just one?
Me: That's fine.
Mom: For how many people?
Me: Just for you.
Mom: I thought other people were coming.
Me. No, just you. So, can you put it on?
Mom: Yes, but I'm hungry.
Me: Ok. We'll get you something else to eat.
Mom: Why? I thought you wanted me to put the blankets on the bed.
Me: I do.
Mom: Then why couldn't you just ask me.
Me: Mom? Can you put the blankets on your bed.
Mom: NO! I'm scared.
Me: Of what?
Mom: Whatever you did to the blankets.
Me: May I put them on for you?
Mom: No. I don't need blankets.
Me: Mom, it is Winter. You need blankets.
Mom: Ok. You want all of them on?
Me: Yes. All three.
Mom: You're going to kill me aren't you?
Me: No. But I need you to put the blankets on.
Mom: Well. I'm not going to.
Me: Ok. That's fine. May I put them on for you?
Mom: No. I don't even live here.
Me: Would you please put one of the blankets on your bed? Please?
Mom: But I have blankets already.
Me: No, they're right there. I washed them.
Mom: They were washed when they were on the bed.
Me: I washed them again. Would you put just one on?
Mom: No. There are three here.
Me: Yes, I know. They need to go on your bed.
Mom goes to her room.
Mom: Where are my blankets?
Me: Right here. They need to get put on your bed.
Mom: Well. I'm not doing it.
Me: Ok. That's fine.
DD distracts her while I go put them on.
Mom: I would have done it if you'd asked.
Me: Go screw yourself.
Mom: So I was supposed to screw myself before I put the blankets on the bed?
