Do you realise how sad that makes you sound? I pity you.
I don’t think pets really fit in with kids and elderly people, but I get what you mean. It really does suck, even if the person are responsible for their own loneliness. Most of the time they aren’t, but sometimes…
Think about it this way. If I didn’t think I was funny, no one would, and that would be really sad.
Why not? Rabbits, for example. If you don’t take care of them, they’re completely screwed. Cats can say “fuck you, I’m doing what I want”, but a lot of domestic animals are pretty well at our mercy, and sometimes owners aren’t that merciful.
Well, erm, thanks again. My Grandma does a lot for me, like I said. Not every person that takes care of someone is a good caretaker, though. It can, er, differ…
At least I think I’m funny.
Yeah, I know. Sometimes the charge - be it kid or pet or elderly person - has to take care of themselves. And that sucks. I don’t think that’s right, which is why it’s even more important to appreciate what you have. I’m going to remember that.
Really? I never would’ve guessed.
Well… thank you? I’m not sure what you mean to be honest… I thought everyone did that, at least in some small form.
The more you know.
They don’t, though. Not at all. People, especially teenagers, forget to appreciate how much other people do for them and how integral their parents - or caretakers, whatever - are to their lives. It’s really inspiring that you have that sense of gratitude.
It’s someone’s way of showing that person A (them) is exchanging
obviousfacts with person B. Seriously dude, have you ever been on the Internet?
I celebrate everything my Grandma does for me everyday, and I will until the day I die. I don’t need to go all out one day every year to show her that.
I guess not. I’m still stuck in the “Captain Obvious” era.
That… is actually really impressive. I think that’s the better way to be, really. Wow.
Oh, well, the more you know.
The food is good, I agree with you on that. I guess it just isn’t something I’ve ever liked.
Where does that come from? I know it goes along with a shooting star, but I don’t actually know it’s point of origin.
Why? Do you not celebrate or something? I mean, I know family can be a bit much, but they are your family, after all. That’s their job - to be a bit much.
It’s not that hard actually, I have soccer practice pretty much every day of the week, so I know what is happening and what isn’t happening from the talks in the locker rooms. Homework, well… I could do better with that, I have to admit. I don’t mind that we have a small break for Thanksgiving, I just don’t enjoy the holiday that much.
Oh, that makes sense. I never thought of that - I’m usually one of the ones talking in the boys’ locker room.
Why don’t you like Thanksgiving? I mean, it’s an excuse to eat a lot, what’s not to love?
… I meant it as a rhetorical question, Reid. Thanks for answering anyway.
I’ve already lost my planner. I know that I should ask for another one, but I’d probably just loose it again. As for Thanksgiving break… well, it’s pretty much over as soon as it has started. Plus Thanksgiving is kind of overrated.
You are so welcome.
How do you keep track of your homework, then? Or, more importantly, days when we have late starts or early outs or four day weekends? The first thing I do with my planner is always highlight those so I can’t miss them. Like Thanksgiving. Even if it’s barely a break, I’m not going to complain about an extra-long weekend.
School is killing me, I swear.
Um… I dunno. I don’t even know how many days there are until Thanksgiving break. I think they should include a countdown in our syllabuses or planners. Save us the trouble of actually figuring it out ourselves.
June! How are you?
