Me: I’m giving up sweets for lent.
Myself: You’re not Catholic.
“So what? I can do whatever I damn please.”
“You’ve been swearing a lot lately.”
“I know. I think it’s the meds”
“I think it’s you refusing to take responsibility for your actions. You could get your words under control if you wanted to.”
“Don’t you have homework to do?”
“You’re me, goffball”
“Really? It didn’t seem that way when you were chastising me just now.”
“Keep arguing. I’ll chastise you even more when you make a B in all your classes.”
“You know that’s not going to happen. You’re just trying to scare me.”
“… I’m still giving up sweets for lent.”Yes, yes, I know I’m behind on my reading notes. I promise, I have work in progress. I have something on the fossil record and I’ll start on the war against the Amalekites pretty soon. Right after I get some more sleep.
