My son came home for a couple of days before heading south for spring break, although it’s a miracle he made it home considering he had practically no brakes on his car. Him: “Mom, my car makes a weird noise when I put on the brakes.” Me: “I’ll take care of it.” After driving to the auto shop and hearing the sound of metal on metal when using the brakes, it’s a miracle I’m here to write this. Oh – and although I send a rent check every month, it looks like he’s been living in his car – clothes, shoes, magazines, food – including the Christmas cookies I sent back with him in December, crushed and unopened, never having fulfilled their Christmas purpose. Bet you can guess who’s not getting cookies anymore.
Anyway, moving on – today we have Cain asking Finn for advice on girls – a topic that, by now, Cain should have realized Finn is probably not the best person to ask – but they get a little side-tracked. My math: 3 + 1 = chapter 4, 8 lines.
“Anyway, getting back to Erin, I don’t know what to say to her, Finn. I need to break up with her, but she’s so used to getting her way, she’d probably just tell me that wasn’t an option, make me go shopping again, then force me to watch another marathon of The Vampire Diaries.”
“It’s really not such a bad show, you know, if you can look past all those male model types. It’s got some hot girls.”
“Still not worth it. No one ever dies on that show. They come back, turn into vampires, hybrids, it’s hard to keep up.”
“Dude, it’s a little scary you know that much about it. Are you sure you’re not into it?”
