The proof that cloning can be done

The Roo-girl has a thing about looking and being like me.

I suspect it goes back to understanding just a tiny piece of the depth of the horrors that her father inflicted on me and her brothers.

But regardless of the reason, she is always looking at pieces of me, pieces of her -- and finding them alike.

We have the same little crinkle in our ears.

We are both short.

We have the same hair.

*screeeeeeeeeeeeeeech*

Um. Ok, so we DON'T have the same hair. Anyway, she wants to be like me.

And so it was that we were listening to the radio and a newscaster was explaining about how the Governator is thinking about selling some of California's landmarks to make a little cash for our bankruptish state.

"WHAT????" shrieked the Roo-girl, with all the righteous indignation of I'm-two-months-from-turning-15. "He can't do that!!!!!"

Well, possibly he can, I explained.

"What does he want to sell?"

One thing that he is talking about selling is the Coliseum.

She looked at me and raised one eyebrow.

"Isn't that in ROME???"

Bwahahahahahaha. Yeah, I really do love that kid. But it got better.

"No," I explained patiently. "The Coliseum he wants to sell is a football stadium here. It's the stadium where USC plays."

"USC plays there?" she snorted. "Pffffffffft, he can TOTALLY sell THAT then."

Yes, my darling daughter, you are TOTALLY like me.

I wasn't aware that they still used the Coliseum. Last I saw it, it was a porn park. I was very afraid. Good luck with the selling!

That is too funny!

hahaha! Awesome!

Well, the good news is she clearly likes you. I spend my time thinking about how my mother and I differ ...

The bad news? She thinks that the governator has the power to sell a Coliseum in another country ... but that's a minor detail. The rest is hawtness.

ROFL!

I worry when my daughter tries to be like me. I'm sure she'll be ordering double shots of espresso before seeing over the counter at Starbucks.

How funny! That is like the big discussion here on where Pearl Harbor was. The Boy couldn't be convinced that he was wrong. HA!

That's cute. I didn't know about the stadium's name. Couldn't they have been a bit more original? Apparently not.

Awww . . . my future. I can only imagine that Matchy Pajamas leads to conversations like that. Suu-weet!

Janet,
Off the subject totally, but my son bought tickets for us to see Wicked in August. We've got front row seats at the BOK Center in Tulsa. I thought of you.

what a sense of humor

Jaina said...

Haha, no objections from me there. I'm a UCLA fan myself.

Janet said...

I'm still not over the "2-months-from-15". How did that happen? I SWEAR She just turned 14 last week! Didn't she? Wait - who's that 5-year-old sitting on my bed?

I need valium.
