Daughter: Stop lecturing me!

Mother: I don’t lecture you.

Daughter: You do lecture.  You do it all the time!

Mother: I don’t lecture.  I explain.

[Pause]

Daughter: Then stop explaining!

Scoring Life

October 16, 2008 at 12:44 pm (Uncategorized)

So I watch Gossip Girl (really, and I love it).  The other day, a friend pointed me to New York Magazine’s review of the show each week.  They comment on aspects of the plot, oufits, characters, etc., and score “plus” or “minus” based on the realism of it.  For example, one entry is:

The TA lady knows how to untie a knot because “my mother was in the Navy.” No. Minus 1.

I have decided to start scoring life that way.  Such as, “Traffic was really backed up this morning.  Minus only 1, because I should have taken the subway.”  Or, “The cafeteria had pasta station today.  Plus 3, because I was jonesing for carbs.” 

I wonder how my days would add up…
