So, Ms. B. is out of school for the summer and, God love her, is slowly but surely going to drive me crazy with calling and texting me at work. A sampling:
Ms. B. So, Lennah and I are going to go up to the park.
Ms. B (five minutes later): Actually, we’re going to go to Russell Stover’s
Ms. B (an additional five minutes later): Actually, I think we’re going to stay here.
Ms. B.: “Sooooo, Chloe has all of these water balloons…..”
Ms. B.: “Hey Mom, It’s Ms. B. … … … Nevermind.” (click).’
Ms. B: Hey Mom.
Me: Hi babe, what are you up to?
Ms. B.: I’m watching the Dr. Oz. show and I am learning about health and how to lose fat and I am learning that coffee is good for your skin.
Me: Excellent, I always like to learn that coffee is good for me…
Ms. B. I know, right? Also, this guy Shawn is on there and he runs the hardest video workout made. U can be fit and have a six pack in sixty days. It’s call Insanity.
Me: I’ve heard of it, I think it’s pretty intense…
Ms. B: It is because when u do the workout he made it so u work on your legs back stomach and arms all at the same time. U only have to do fifteen minutes a day and in two months you will be awesome looking.
Me: I don’t think Insanity sounds like it would be a very healthy workout for someone your age, but you can come to the gym with me if you are interested in trying something else.
Ms. B: Oh. I don’t want to work out. Also, did you know that these pills just came out that act like the fountain of youth and make u look ten years younger?
Me: Seriously!?! Say ‘no’ to all pills. You’re starting to sound like an infomercial. Get off the couch.
Ms. B: What time does “So You Think You Can Dance” come on again?
