Scene from a Saturday night in the time of Covid:
Lily: I’m going to go organize the sock bin and watch Full House.
(editorial comment: last weekend she completely organized my pantry. No, you can’t have her, she is mine.)
Alice: No you aren’t. We are all watching [some terrible disney plus movie I can’t remember the name of]. Even mommy. I figured out that I can get her to watch any movie if I just threaten to tell her the entire plot in detail.
(editorial comment: it’s true. I would rather just watch a terrible movie than have the plot described to me. This kid has my number)
Margaret: That’s extortion.
(editorial comment: perhaps her most insightful comment of the year).
If you need me, I will be watching a movie about a teenager high school version of the King Arthur legend.
