fake post II: conversational highlights
Yesterday evening, my cousin shook his head and said, â€œYou know how some mothers abandon their newborn babies in cardboard boxes in front of church-doors or hospitals? I really think thatâ€™s what we should do with you, too.â€
â€œYeah, but Iâ€™m sort of beyond the newborn phase already,â€ I retorted.
He rolled his eyes. â€œYouâ€™re 22 going on 4. Itâ€™s the same thing.â€
Later in the evening, after a conversation about something or other, he leaned across the table and said menacingly, â€œYou repeat one word of this to anyone, and I will personally donate you to the Salvation Army.â€
Who needs enemies anyway, when youâ€™ve got such loving family members?
Also, on a random note – (couldnâ€™t resist posting this one) â€“
L: Are all Pakistanis as cool as you?
Yasmine: Oh, of course not
Yasmine: Iâ€™m the exception to the rule
Yasmine: Why am I cool all of a sudden?
L: Because I havenâ€™t met that many cool Indians and Pakistanis
L: I thought I was being open-minded
L: But they suck arse as roommates
L: FRIGGIN EGG
L: They’re horrible to live with
L: oh lordy
L: I believe in karma
L: I musta done something
L: To get these fools
L: I see you more as Canadian than Pakistani
L: Because so far all the Canadians Iâ€™ve met are nice
[There, all you Canadians can feel vindicated now.]
