Me: Ok when we get to dance and you let Kelly out, you have to get out the car backwards and dance around while singing circus music
Shaggy: gives the look that says my mother is a retard and giggles
We drop Kell at dance. By drop I mean we used to shoe horn to wiggle her out of the backseat of my little tiny
Then we have this conversation:
Me: What time will you be home Saturday from homecoming?
Shaggy: I'm not sure what time the dance ends but I think girlfriend has to be home by midnight.
His current curfew is 11. Yes, I realize he's 16. Yes, I realize he's a good kid. Even good kids need limits and well honestly, I feel the need to still show I have the power.
Me: You going to call Aunt about your haircut and beard trim?
Shaggy: I don't know. **pauses** I think I might just shave.
Me: Why??? Aunt said she'd pay for a haircut, style and beard trim. Let them do it.
Shaggy: I don't think I'm going to get my haircut.
Me: Shaggy, you know I don't care about long hair. If you want to grow yours that's fine. BUT, you need a trim. And you should let them neaten up your beard because, well, it looks like pubes growing on your chin.
Shaggy: Gives me "Did my mom just really say pubes and how freaking gross" look rolled into one
Shaggy: I don't want to cut my hair.
Me: You don't have to get 5" cut off but you need a trim.
Shaggy: I don't even have 5" of hair
Me: Stop being literal you know what the hell I mean.
Shaggy: But, girlfriend likes my hair
Me: You want a later curfew? Its all about supply and demand my friend!
Shaggy: WHAT?? Its NOTHING like supply and demand..I did take economics you know.
Me: I'll supply you a later curfew but I demand a haircut and beard trim, call your Aunt! See, supply and demand.
Me: You don't seem to understand that this isn't an option....When I say supply and demand, its all on my end. Otherwise, I'll be at homecoming in my nightgown at 11 to pick you up. I will stand outside the car and yell, "Shaggy....Mommy's here. How was the dance???"
Shaggy: **glare of death and dead silence**
Score 1 for Mom, 0 for Shaggy
PS: I pledge my undying love for Tina for showing me a new toy in the strike out thing!!! You rock, Tina!
