sleeping-in

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.

*pause*

Me: So apart from his games there’s nothing else?

D: Nope.

Me: Really?

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!
