Me: "If you find a ride. Mark and I are going to a show in Waltham. ...actually, if you don't find a ride, you could come with us."
Elayna: "What kind of show?"
Me: "Commedia dell'arte."
Elayna: "Which is?"
Me: *long explanation of the history of commedia dell'arte*
Elayna: *blink* *blink*
Me: "...16th-century Italian LARPing."
CONSIDER IT. For reals. It is.
EDIT: Life with 'song, Elayna, and Max
Max: *tries to insert head into bag of Lesser Evil Krinkle Sticks Potato Snacks*
Me: "Max, noooo. You do not want. They're terrible."
Elayna: "No, Max."
Max: *attempts again*
Me & Elayna: "Maaaax. No."
Me, picking up bag and brandishing it at Elayna: "Try one."
Elayna: "What? No."
Me: "C'mon. You're young and resilient."
Elayna: *takes bag and reads the back* "Stop. Bad snacking."
Me: "I don't think they meant it like that. You are inserting punctuation."
Elayna: "I am reading it as a warning. Lesser Evil. That means it's still evil, you know."
