Okay, today was so awesome.
Remi invited me and Dom over to check out the new Space Dementia game that just came out. I’d been thinking about using some of my birthday money to buy it, so getting the chance to try it out before I made up my mind was pretty cool.
Getting to hang out at Remi and River’s apartment was even cooler.
It was awesome – there were clothes and trash all over the place, and no one yelling at them to pick it up.
We played for like three hours straight without anyone telling us we had to stop and do homework or go outside.
When we got hungry, River called and ordered us some pizza. No one made us get a salad too. And no one nagged us about how many slices we were taking.
Remi dropped us back off after dinner, but if we’d stayed the night, guess what? There wouldn’t have been anyone giving us a hard time about staying up late either.
Damn, I think I’d do anything to be in Remi’s shoes right now.
I guess the only downside would be living with his sister. Not that I have a sister… But my cousins are the closest thing… And living with them is already a pain in the ass.
Charlie’s just so damn loud. She practically screams when she’s gabbing on the phone with her friends… And don’t get me started on when she sneaks Ben into her bedroom. She’d probably die if she knew what I’ve heard them doing in there.
And Alex is just a total slob. I mean, I’m one to talk, right? But seriously, her room is just a disaster area. And she snores like a goddamn freight train! Guess I should be happy I share a wall with Charlie, all things considered.
Tony would probably be the least-annoying to live with… But she’s just… kinda boring. I’d need to live with someone who actually likes to have a little fun, y’know? Play video games. Get drunk. Stay up way too late. Have a party… Yeah, definitely not her style.
I dunno. Remi says it’s really not so bad living with River. From what I’ve seen, the two of them really don’t seem to mind each other too much. We had a lot of fun tonight.
And I guess if the trade-off is not having any adults to deal with, I’d be able to suck it up and do it too.
I just can’t wait until I’m old enough to get out of here and live on my own like they do. I mean, I love Tante Joce and grandpa and everyone else… But I’m just so sick of being babied all the time. I wish they could understand that I don’t need them hovering over me and trying to control every freaking detail of my life.
I’m sixteen. I’m practically an adult now.
And I really think it’s time they start treating me like one.
A very Merry Christmas to all of my readers who celebrate! 🙂
Because of the holiday, there will be no new chapter tomorrow. However, to make up for it, we will have a chapter on Tuesday the 27th, in addition to our normal Wednesday chapter. 🙂
