Good taste in music

8 Jun

The family is listening to music on YouTube while cleaning Des’s room on a Saturday afternoon.

Des sings along with a Beatles classic: “Hey, dude!…”

Later, Des walks up to the computer and a minute later “Is This Love?” starts playing. The parents are impressed:

– Wow, Des! How did you find it?

– I just typed in the name.

In the YouTube search box, the parents find “pop marly”. And it worked!

Courtesy Call

Minutes after leaving Des at the grandparents’, Mari, Nik and Olivia are driving home. Nik’s phone rings.

Des: I wanted to tell you that you forgot the potato chips here.

Nik: Awww. Desu, thank you for letting us know! Well, I guess, you can just eat them, then.

Des (chewing): I already am!

Thanks for calling?

Hope it was worth the wait

Suddenly, on the way to school:

– I wish I were a boy…

– …?!! Why?

– All I want are ponies. I never get to play with cars!

– OK, let’s get you some cars.

– But I want ponies!

Fly on the wall

Des comes out of the bathroom:

– There is a fly in there and it was looking at me the whole time!

Hold your horses

Mari and Nik call from the kitchen to Des who is doing something in her room: “Des, come back! We miss you.” Des, absorbed in some work at her desk: “Keep missing…”
