A Scandal Is Brewing

| UT, USA | Related | April 18, 2012

(I am 17 years old. I come home early from a party because there was a lot of drinking. It’s about 10pm.)

Me: “Mom, Dad, I’m home!”

(My parents’ heads peek over the back of the couch.)

Mom: “What are you doing home? I thought you were going to be gone until midnight!”

Me: *realizing that I have interrupted a tryst* “There was…beer. I came home and…are you guy’s doing it on the couch?”

Dad: “Yes! Now go be a teenager and drink some beer! Scram!”

Me: “Last time I decide to be responsible and not break any laws or my curfew.”

Parents: “That’s right!”

Family is… Part 2

Grad School Is A Killer

, | OH, USA | Related | April 17, 2012

(My dad and I recently saw ‘The Hunger Games’. It has also become my brother’s new favorite movie. He is away at college. I have just been offered a Graduate Assistantship at my top choice for a University.)

Dad: “We should end all of our texts to your brother with ‘May the odds be ever in your favor’.”

Me: “Oh! I forgot to tell him! Let me text him…” *reading my text aloud*I got offered a graduate assistantship at [school]! May the odds be ever in your favor.

(My brother replies a few minutes later, and I laugh so hard at his answer that I can’t even read it out loud to my dad.)

Dad: “What’s so funny?”

Me: “He’s calling grad school The Hunger Games. Cutthroat, high stress, and not enough time or money to eat. May the odds be ever in your favor.”

(We are eating Easter dinner with a good portion of my family at my Grandma’s house. I’m looking at a decorative lamp as I’m getting back to my seat.)

Grandma: “Your father made that.”

Me: “Really?” *tries to turn it on*

Grandma: “Yeah, it don’t work.”

Mum: “I like having the window open so that I can see out of it.”

Me: “You mean that transparent pane of glass that you can already see out of?”
