Me: Mom. Mooooom. Mommy. ❤
Mother: What is it?
Me: I want it. Can I have it? PLEASE? 😀
Mother: What exactly do you want?
Me: I really want it. I need to have it.
Mother: Jen. What do you want?
Me: That Hello Kitty thermos over there.
Mother: No. You are not a child anymore. You work for the government and you’re a law student. What will people think when they see you with such a childish item?
Me: PLEASE. 😥
Dad: What’s wrong?
Mother: She wants that Hello Kitty thermos.
Dad: Come on, that’s for kids. 🙂
Me: I won’t show it to anyone. I’ll keep it hidden.
*cue laughter from parents*
Mother: Jen, choose something else. What about a dignified-looking thermos without designs?
*cue pouting from me*
Me: Look, I know you’re just watching out for me, but I don’t really care about what people think even if they see me with it. But if it bothers you so much, I promise I will keep it hidden at all times and I won’t bring it to work or class. Pros: I will never bring it up again, since I know you’re getting tired of hearing about it already. I’ll stop whining about it and we can move on and finish our chores.
*cue more laughter from parents*
Dad: Just give it to her, she’ll get it anyway.
Me: YESSSS. SCORE! 😀
