Carrot Stick: "So, you know Olivia Stone*?"
CS: "She's so cute! She's just adorable! You know she's going out with Josh Groovan?
F: "No way!"
CS: "Yeah, she doesn't really want to. I asked her why she doesn't just break up with him, and she said she can't, 'cause Ty Binder is in charge."
The conversation quickly went onto a new, seemingly random tangent full of giggling and "oh my gosh!" and a few "he's so cute!!" But I lagged behind, stuck wondering "Why is Ty Binder in charge?" I don't know. And I guess I just wouldn't understand, because I'm not in junior high.
(apparently Josh asked Ty to ask Olivia out because he thinks Olivia is hot and Olivia told Ty to tell Josh yes she would go out with him even though she doesn't really like him and now she would break up with him except that Ty said she can't because Josh really likes her but Josh and Olivia don't really even talk so what the point is I don't know but this is sure a long rambling sentence devoid of all punctuation and thank goodness Olivia does everything Ty says because he is in charge of everything after all and all I can say is thank goodness I am not twelve anymore.)
However, I am still trying to figure out why I 'm not in charge.
Really, what good is being a parent if you can't be in charge of anything?
