“I’M WATCHING THIS!” as the channel changed.
“WELL, I WANNA WATCH DEGRASSI!”
“TOO BAD, I’M WATCHING HOUSE OF ANUBIS!”
This volleyed back and forth a bit, like a tennis match between two short-fused siblings fighting over how best to kill Daddy for his money, before Henry entered the room to play referee.
“This is an argument I should be breaking up between a twelve-year-old and a four-year-old,” Henry yelled as brand new wrinkles gouged themselves around his eyes. “Not a THIRTY-ONE-YEAR-OLD and a four-year-old.”
I’m sorry, but after a long day, mama wants to kick back with some Cherokee Red and a fucking Degrassi episode, OK. And I haven’t seen Cherokee Red in the store for years, so best let this bitch have her goddamn show.
