Addressing The Dressing Situation

| NJ, USA | Related | October 22, 2012

(I am around 15, and want to start cosplaying. My parents are pretty geeky themselves, but are very much against this.)

Me: “Mom! I want to make my own Halloween costume this year! Can you take me to the craft store to get fabric and sewing supplies?”

Mom: “No, that’s a waste of my time and your money.”

Me: “Please? You’ve seen the sewing projects I’ve done for Home-Ec. I can sew!”

Mom: “No, because you’re just going to make something from one of those Japanimation shows you watch.”

Me: “So? There’s a tape in your room of you and Dad dressed like Spock and Kirk on an Enterprise set.”

(Long silence.)

Mom: “I can take you tomorrow.”

A Laundorama Queen

(We have just discovered that our key to the apartment block’s laundry room doesn’t work.)

Mom: “How are we going to do our laundry if we can’t get into the laundry room? I don’t want to be wearing dirty clothes to work!”

Me: “We could, you know, just go to another laundromat.”

Mom: *turning bright red* “Oh, my gosh, that didn’t even cross my mind!”

Everyone Wants A Driven President

| New York, USA | Related | October 22, 2012

(My mom and I are on our way home. It is the day of the Presidential debate between Obama and Romney. It is taking place nearby, so a lot of the local roads are blocked. This is making my mom irritated, since she keeps having to find a new route to take.)

Mom: “Why do they need to block so many roads?! Don’t they know how inconvenient this is to us?!”

Me: “Mom, they just want to keep the President as safe as possible. It’s only for today anyways.”

Mom: “I bet it’s because the President is a lousy driver! Can’t go a few miles without hitting something.”

Me: “Mom… you do realize the President doesn’t drive himself to these places, right?”

Mom: *embarrassed* “What? Oh, of course I know that!”
