The art of Suffrage
me: (driving with Jack) … and then we have to return your Smurfs disc because it’s overdue…
Jack: Can we get another movie?
me: Library’s closed. Maybe we can get something from Red Box?
Jack: What like your Dexter number 5?
me: Season 5. Already got it.
Jack: Is he a bad guy? What’s it about?
me: It’s about the Miami police department. He’s … kind of a good guy.
Jack: Then why’s he always covered in blood?
Jack: On the movie case.
me: Oh. He helps people that were in accidents and stuff.
Jack: What movie can I get? Am I old enough for PG?
me: Sometimes…depends…we’ll have to see what they have.
Jack: How about old fashioned movies?
me: What about them?
Jack: Are there any at Red Box?
me: What do you mean, like that YOU can get?
Jack: I don’t know.
me: I don’t think you’d be interested. We’ll see if we can find a kid’s movie.
Jack: How come you’re always in charge of what we get and not me!?
me: I’m the mom and I’m in charge. Forever.
Jack: Okay then, how about we just pick an old movie like waayyyy back when women couldn’t vote or something.
(Is he putting me in my place, or what??)
