God, I do love the Drama King. He makes me laugh.
Which is a good thing, because sometimes? He ticks me off major.
But for the most part, he and I are the same kind of crazy.
Witness this recent wide-ranging instant messaging conversation between the two of us.
It started when he IM'd me out of the blue, apparently panicked by where he found himself one night:
Drama King: Save me!
Evil Mother: lol from what?
Drama King: I am in the belly of the beast!
Evil Mother: where is that?
Drama King: A coffee shop at Enemy University
*Editor's note: There is are only two colleges I root for: my own alma mater and whoever is playing Enemy University. My parents went to the cross-town rival. I was raised to hate that other place. No lie*
Evil Mother: ewwwwwwwww
Drama King: Woe!
Evil Mother: get out! get out!
Drama King: Rocky is DJing at a party, and I am his official roady!
Evil Mother: at enemy university??? horrible
Drama King: Sadness
Drama King: *woe*
Evil Mother: run!!!!!
Drama King: he knows he doesn't have to worry about me tho, cuz I would never date an EU student.
Evil Mother: ROFL
Evil Mother: you are indeed a son of my loins
Drama King: I should hope so. Although perhaps you should keep your loins to yourself.
Evil Mother: i wasn't really planning to share them with YOU
Drama King: And believe me, I appreciate that.
Evil Mother: believe me... you were there once. and that was ENOUGH for me
Drama King: And too much for me.
Evil Mother: eh. you dont remember
Drama King: I remember enough
Evil Mother: *shudder*
Drama King: Loins I say! Loins!
Evil Mother: you had a big head
Evil Mother: you STILL have one.
Drama King: Hmmm... genetics much?
Evil Mother: not me, your majesty
Drama King: My majesty? Drama King, master of the universe?
Evil Mother: swelled head much?
Drama King: THAT one I DID inherit from you, tyvm
Drama King: *hides*
Evil Mother: *snort*
Evil Mother: *beats obnoxious son with a clue-by-four*
*an expression I can't take credit for. I learned it on Plurk one night
Drama King: Don't do that to Roo-girl!*
*a reference to the continuing tease by all three brothers that Roo will turn into a boy on her next birthday. They started when she was 7 and every year bumped up the deadline. Sigh.
Evil Mother: you are so mean to your sister
Drama King: No I'm not! I like J-bear!
*Insert generally uninteresting conversational interlude about Z-man's visit to an eye doctor about how wonked his vision is. But this is a topic for another day*
Evil Mother: he uses one eye for distance and one for close. without thinking about it ....
Evil Mother: the brain is an amazing thing
Drama King: For a second I thought you said the (insert Rocky's real name here) is an amazing thing.
Evil Mother: ROFL
Evil Mother: i dont want to know about the happy penis dance again
Drama King: You should ask Wonderhubby to demonstrate. Its an instinctual thing
Evil Mother: oh shit i dont want to know about anyone's happy penis dance. instinctual?????
Evil Mother: eeek
Drama King: Hehe
Evil Mother: is it like jumping jacks?
Drama King: No. No. No.
Evil Mother: <--- is shamefully stupid, she guesses
Drama King: Why do you open such doors?
Drama King: I am only human!
Drama King: Incredibly amazing, yes, but still human
Evil Mother: *eyeroll*
Drama King: Don't deny it. You know how nifty I am.
Drama King: You are so jealous.
Drama King: Its ok. Nothing to be ashamed of.
Evil Mother: uh. yeah
Evil Mother: ok
Evil Mother: sure
Drama King: BTW, Twilight is kinda lame.
*Insert squealing of mental brakes as we completely change conversation topics*
Evil Mother: i liked it. did you finish it?
Drama King: Wah wah, I'm clumsy. Wah wah, everyone wants me...
Drama King: No. I'm 1/4 of the way through. Bella aggravates me.
Evil Mother: dont you want to be taken by edward, though?
Drama King: Not especially. Miss Meyer is not much with the description. He's got bronze hair and color changing eyes. Big whoop.
Evil Mother: oh but he's so ROMANTIC!
Evil Mother: *swoon*
Drama King: You're such a GIRL
Evil Mother: yeah, well that worked out well for YOU
Drama King: Lol, well... you know... that and the whole good in the sack thing.
Drama King: *waves his magical tmi wand*
Evil Mother: AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Drama King: My work here is done.
Evil Mother: for sure
