Finding the three.

(Backstory: every so often, usually during dinner conversation, Mom talks about her love of Princess Diana and how sad she was when Diana died. This inevitably turns into an argument where Mom tries to explain why Prince Charles having a mistress was unequivocally bad and I try to explain the concept of open relationships.)

Mom: Everyone wants to think they’re special, they’re the one.

Me (frustrated): Not everyone!

Mom (incredulous): You don’t want to be the one.

Me: I want to be the zero. Some people want to be the three.

Dinner was over, so we gave up the current round.
