This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but I must confess that Jessie’s words yesterday were actually mine. Shocker, huh?
I did show the post to her for approval and do you want to know what kind of response I received? As she proceeded to read, I heard a few chuckles, then an outright laugh at the “idiots” part. Apparently, it’s okay to call both parents and brother idiots. Yes, she does text under the table. I got only one objection, “I do NOT text that much!”
In response, I’ll admit one more thing. As she stated this, she had a little knowing grin on her face. Oh yeah, mom nailed it.
Jessie is working like a fiend. I stand close by, driving her nuts and saying, “Is there anything I can do?” As if…
We are currently down to two weeks of school remaining.
Brief example of typical day (In Jessie’s words):
Wake up, eat breakfast and begin to study. Work on papers and projects due. Mom is standing by me, driving me CRAZY! Break to prepare my lunch. Stop to text. Refuse mom’s offer to prepare my lunch. I’d end up with steamed broccoli and salad. I take lunch to computer and resume work. Stop to text. Head into school to take two make-up tests. Mom picks me up. Text while mom is talking about something. Come home. Study. Hold on…friend keeps texting me. Email biology project to teacher. Done with daily requirements. Break to text. Wait. Receive email that the english paper was due today. It is 4:00 and teacher tells me that IF I email it to her by midnight, she’ll only take off 10 points. YIKES. Text this to a friend. Mom asks me about something else. What? Would I like a smoothie??? Is she crazy? I don’t have time for a smoothie. Text friend to complain. Finally finish paper and email it to teacher. Stop to text. Parents are forcing me to actually sit down at the table and have dinner with them. Are they crazy? I don’t have time for chit-chat. (They don’t know that I text under the table!) Okay, chit-chat was not so bad. I got to laugh at my brother, mother and dad. They’re such idiots. Okay, back to the computer, but before that, I need to text. Work on drama project that’s due on Monday. I’m feeling encouraged. Stop to text friend before I go to bed.
