Nora, facing her little sister (fiercely): What's cooler than cool!?
Susannah makes a big show of wrapping her arms around herself and shivering.
Nora: No, Zu, you say "ice cold."
Nora: What's cooler than cool!?
Susannah pauses, certain she's got this one.
Nora: Ice cold! You say 'ice cold!'
Nora: That's right.
I shouldn't be too surprised by how street these children are. After all, their mother has been known to bust out with "Hey-o-hey-o-hey-o-hey-ohh..." during breakfast prep, only to have their father belt out from the hallway "Hey-o that girl looks good..."
To which their various children reply with frighteningly advanced eye rolls that seem to beg the question: What the heck is a "diggity?"
|At the Valentine's Day school party:|
Me- What're you doing, Nora?
Nora- Just holdin' my sister's hand and sawin' my leg.
But today is not for bustin' rhymes, it's for playing a new game which they've deemed Bangers and Shots. Is this game:
a) a rather violent English pub
b) a wildly inappropriate video game
or c) a medical clinic where I hope you never, ever find yourselves?
It's c), the walk-in health center that makes a spin in County seem like a day at Canyon Ranch.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm awaiting a vaccination into the chest to treat a manicure.
