Because J-bear's birthday was last month. She turned 19 with very little fanfare because she wanted to wait.
She wanted her birthday dinner after Z-man came home.
And therefore we waited with her -- until this past weekend, when we could hold out no longer for ...
*insert trumpet fanfare here*
BIRTHDAY DINNER, a la Planet:
Evil Mother: *something something I can't remember until we got to ...* ... married for *pause* six years.
Drama King: Bwahahahahaha. I liked how you had to pause there. What, were you counting on your fingers?
Z-man: Good thing it was only six. What will you do when you get past 10?
Evil Mother: HA! I'll count on my toes. I can count to 20.
Drama King: I can count to 21 ...
Evil Mother: *eyeroll*
Z-man: You could count to 22.
J-bear: How do you do THAT?
Evil Mother: *eyeroll times two*
Drama King: *patting Rocky on the leg* I can count to 22.
Evil Mother: Ayeeeeeeeiiiiiieeeeeeee!!!!!!
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
Z-man: Have you ever watched "Man Vs. Wild"?
Evil Mother: That guy is CRAZY.
Z-man: Yeah, but he did this thing where he went into icy water NAKED and then was doing jumping jacks.
*Before we continue, let me just say that I actually searched for this episode and couldn't find it. The rest of the conversation, however, stands on its own*
Evil Mother: Lalalalalala ... I can't hear you! You know, I was totally traumatized when I was in college. I went to this erotic film festival ...
Drama King: Wait. Wait. Wait! An erotic film festival? Do I want to hear about this????
The Roo-girl: Lalalalalalala ... I can't hear you!!!!
Evil Mother: Yeah, yeah, whatever. It was in COLLEGE. Anyway, the only thing I remember about it was a scene with a naked man doing jumping jacks. I have never been the same.
Z-man: I don't think after being in the ice water, the Survivor Man's ... uh ...
Evil Mother: Lalalalalala ... I CAN'T HEAR YOU!!!!
It never gets any better.
