lectr #2: mom + dad vs. nina
like i sd b4, i didn't think mom and dad both had enuff N-R-G to go a round against nina right after they did with me! still, they did. i guess it just goes 2 show u tht u shud never underestimate age + anger over youth + wits. not that nina's all tht quick on th draw n e way, but here they all went 2nite:
dad: "so, nina, r we going to hear n e more out of u thn out of rawdyn?"
dad: "come on! i thot u would at least want 2 show ur sister up!"
nina: "well, i would, but u'd get the same answers n e way. school sux"
mom: "and why is that, pray tell?"
nina: "dont go all shakespr on me. sux to be him. cant understand a wrd he says. n e way, li'l sis is right, plus 1 more reason. it doesn't prpr u for what rly matters in life. like a job. on that pt., both of u are totally wrong!"
dad: "o rly? pls elaborate."
nina: "dont use big snotty wrds w/me! the reason school is so crappy is b'cuz i have career goals in mind, and nothin in school is going 2 prpr me. i mean, why study circles and geometry when im not gonna be an architect n e way? im gonna work at a fashion mag, an none of u can stop me. end of story."
dad: "what fashion mag is that? smth. where the girls wear no clothes?"
nina: "DAD!!! shut the f@#$ up! its a REAL magazine, where girls DO wear cloths. it's called verite, run by mademoiselle belle veraud. very classy."
dad: "does mlle. veraud know that u swear like a sailor?"
nina: *rollseyes* "that's beside the pt. n e way, she needs a pa. that's a personal assistant--not that u 2 would kno that. im gonna go work 4 her."
mom: "when? aftr u graduate from H.S.?"
nina: "that's wut im trying to tell u. i dont want to graduate. i dropping out."
mom + dad (together out loud): "WHAT?!?!?!?" me (thinking): (ZOMG!!!!)
mom: "nina, u r NOT dropping out of school."
nina: "o ya? sez who? i'm 17, u know."
mom: "that means ur not 18. as far as i'm concerned, u'll stay in school no matter what miss veraud says, or if she needs a personal assistant."
nina: "u'd deny me a career opportunity? how could you???"
dad: "im sure that the editor of a fashion magazine like verite (holy crap, he even pronounced it right--in FRENCH!!!), "wants a pa with a H.S. diploma."
nina: "what if she doesnt?"
dad: "what if she does?"
nina: "sh@$. u don't even kno her. i do. i'v been talking to her some."
mom (looks more concerned nw): "rly? when? how?"
nina: "on my cell duh. also, on the web i saw an ad for verite employment."
dad: "the only way u'r going to get any 'verite employment' is if u graduate."
nina: "shut up dad. BTW rawdyn, i need ur help studying 4 my french quiz."
me: "vraiment?" (really?) "how much u going 2 pay me?"
nina: "this is free help. i need it really bad or ms. henson will kill me"
me: "quel dommage!" (what a loss, what a pity) "pardonnez-moi. NON."
me: "you just called me a loser. a MALE loser, that is. hahahahahahahaha!"
nina: "I DID NOT"
me: "yes u did. try 'perdante'. if u don't pronounce the 'e', you're calling me a guy loser."
nina: "STFU RAWDYN! U R SO WRONG!!!"
me: "gee, i guess u really do need help for ur french quiz. so sorry. adieu!"
dad: "all the more reason why you both shud finish school. hear that nina?"
nina: "TA GUEULE!!!!" (ok, she knows how to say "shut up" in french all right...)
mom: "if that means what i think it means, ur grounded missy"
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! parents = 1 nina = 0 (by the way, nina's grounded!!!)
