family moment

Conversation between my sister and her daughter, as my niece lounged on one end of the sofa, and her mother lounged on the other end.

T.  I told you hours ago to do two things.  Clean the office and finish your homework.  You haven't done either one.  (pause to stare at daughter)  Don't give me that look of suffering!

(niece interrupts) I'm not looking at you.  (mother interjects) Yes, you are.  (niece replies) You have channels in HD and don't nag all the time?  No, I'm not looking at you.  (sister stares at the creature she gave birth to, and bursts out laughing).

Laugh or cry. That's parenthood for ya.
