Me: What are you watching?? The news???
Spike (lying on the couch and pointing to the chair across the room): Yeah…the remote is all the way over there.
Me (driving home from the fruit market with the kids and hearing the watermelons rolling around in the trunk): I’m going to have to pull over somewhere and rearrange the trunk. My melons are rolling all over the place back there.
Spike: (uncontrollable giggles)
Me (walking into his bedroom to bring his clean laundry): Dude, what’s that smell?? You need to clean in here.
Spike: No, I think that’s just me. I’ve been out of deoderant for a few days.
Spike: Hey, Mom, how much is in my college fund?
Me: Quite a bit, but it won’t get you all the way through four years. That’s why a scholarship would be great.
Spike: What happens to that money if I get a scholarship?
Me: You can use it to pay your living expenses so you don’t have to work through college.
Spike: Living expenses?
Me: Yeah, things you need to live.
Spike: Oh, like a big TV. And Playstation.
Me: Um…I was thinking more like food and clothes.
