I was feeling lazy today.
Actually, that’s the story of my life. My morning consisted of eating, watching TV, and lying on the couch wrapped up in a blanket.
Then Dad came in and asked me to play racquetball with him this afternoon.
I didn’t really want to…because I’m lazy.
But I agreed, just to make him happy.
He said I could take a nap first—which I was planning to do anyway.
Then Tin came down the stairs and informed me that we get the movie channels on demand. She went to go show Dad how it works on his TV.
Dad started watching a movie in his room.
Tin and Matt started watching a movie upstairs.
And I started watching a movie in the family room.
Side note: Mom did not watch a movie. She was on her computer. I assume she was playing Scrabble. Every time—every single time—I pass her, she’s playing Scrabble. She’s even playing it on her phone. I blame Iris for this.
First movie I watched? Tangled.
I was liking it. A movie about going after your dreams? That’s my kind of movie.
And the chameleon was cool.
Then it gets to the part where the guy comes back for Rapunzel.
He gets to the tower. He tells her to let down her hair.
But when he gets up there, her evil mom is standing there…
And she stabs him in the gut…
The TV goes black.
After a few seconds, yelling is heard all over the house.
Me: WHAT THE CRAP?!?
Dad: WHAT’S HAPPENING?!?
Mom: WHAT’S GOING ON?!?
Tin: THE INTERNET’S OUT!!!
We all kept yelling dramatically for a few minutes. It made me laugh a lot.
Then Dad came out of his room and said to me, “That means it must be time to go play racquetball. Go get ready.”
And, just like that, I wasn’t laughing anymore.
But at least I beat him 2 out of 3 games…so overall, today was a good day. =)
