Driving back at 9.45 pm from the numerous Varalakshmi Vratam visits, this is an interesting clip of conversation that the daughter and I had.
Me: Tomorrow’s Saturday. You have your class rt?
D: No mom. I don’t.
Me: Really? It was this week that it got canceled?
D: Yep. Didn’t we just go over this yesterday?
Me: No. I don’t think so. *frowning*
D: Oh fine. I forgive you.
Me: Gee, thanks. So what else you got?
D: Oh. we should buy me closed shoes for camp next week.
Me: Right. I meant as in classes and stuff.So okay, good, nothing for you!
D: Nope. That’s why am going for bro’s basketball games.
Me: Oh yes, he’s got 2 games back to back?
D: Yes. You’re coming right?
Me: I donno. What time’s the first game?
D: 9.30 I think.
Me: Okay. We’ll see.
Me: So apart from his games there’s nothing else?
D: Mom. I don’t have anything. Munchkin doesn’t have anything.
Me: Right. Yeah, I don’t think there’s anything for me either! Perfect! Yay! I can actually sleep in tomorrow?
D: er, sure. You don’t care for your son’s basketball, I see how it is. Sure sleep away mom, sleep away.
Me: Wait. The game’s at 9.30. I said am gonna sleep in. Nobody wake me up before 8! *grinning and declaring triumphantly*
D: *chuckles* Mom! You call 8 am sleeping in? That’s just pathetic mom! Really. Knowing you, you’d be biting away nails at 6.00.
Grr! Am gonna show her. I shall roll on that bed and read in bed and starve if I have to, but I shall not get up till 8 am. There!
