some lady at work gave me two tickets to the houston ballet. i took it because it was free and you dont not take free stuff. i wasn't seriously planning on going but then she came back to double check if i was and i was like well ill have to ask mother if she's interested. that seemed to really delight her. now i realise if i do go i might have to sit next to her during the entire show which would mean
1. i would need to converse with her
2. that would automatically make us friends. after all we'd have been to the ballet together. i don't think i like her enough for that. or at all.
anyway i made the mistake of showing the tickets to mother and of course she's dying to go. now brother and me have a big decision to make. neither of us wants to go see a fucking ballet but we don't know how to suggest she take gaysin.
gaysin was here earlier today along with his mommy dearest. he asked if we wanted to go watch a movie. brother was like yeah we were planning to go watch and before he could say 'vantage point' gaysin was like "the other boleyn girl???". of course he'd pick that to go see. in case you haven't heard of it, it stars that hot bana boy and natalie portman and scarlet johanson's boobs, not that the boobs would be important criteria in gaysin's choice of movie. eventually we ended up scrapping the idea because mother decided it was late and getting dark. it was 6:30! then mother also decided this was a good time to pull out her collection of letters to her sister. ones she wrote between the years of 1972 and 1980 bc or something. she recently unearthed these letters and she's been reading them non stop ever since. the pages are all yellow and they make that weird noise thin typewrite paper from the seventies make. she recited random paragraphs from the letters for us stopping every now and then to give us background story. something about brother using his pocket money to buy gaysin sweets and bonda at school and one about gaysin dressing up as little bo peep for some type of competition. at this same event brother apparently wore banana leaves and went as adam from adam and eve. gaysin got all giggly remembering the good old days. he sighed and threw his hands up in the air every time mother read something he remembered. very entertaining evening was had.
p.s. brother has been here a month now. he insists american water has too much chlorine and now only drinks bottled water. thank you bwssb.
