Conversations with Mike:



"Mom, I'm gonna watch Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules today."


"Did you know that movie is so popular it didn't even come out in theaters? It went straight to 'On Demand'!"

[Insert boring Mom explanation of how "straight to DVD" = "predictable box office flop"]



"Mom, where are we going tonight?"

"A BBQ."

"Aaaawwww. I don't like BBQ. I like steak. Why can't we go to a steak-out?"

[There was indeed steak there, which Mike choked on and threw up in my napkin. Steak-outs are fun!]
