So, before I begin, I need to clear up a few things. The first is that I love my mother, respect her completely, and also find her one of the most humorous people around. That being said....

Last week was Spring Break. Clearly the time of relaxation and fun beaches, right?

I'll take studying and parents for $200, Alex.

I visited my parents at their vacation home over the week and was suprised to find myself the technological answer guy- "hey, anita, help us out on the email thingy, would you? We can't seem to find any of the new ones." (They hadn't clicked on Inbox. Not kidding.)

I'll set the mood...It's Saturday night, and my best friend is visiting me for a weekend of sun, albeit with my parents. In an attempt to get us to stay in for the evening, my dad was continually pouring wine all throughout dinner. Needless to say, by the time we finished, all of us were tired, and definitely not in driving condition. So my mom- a faithful member of Netflix- suggests that we watch a movie. "Honey, we've got just the one- it's called Dreamer and it's about a horse, or something." At this point, I suggest we veto the movie and play poker, great idea, right? Wrong. My friend jumps in, eager to please and suggests we watch the movie as well. I give in, mostly out of boredom and the fact that I know I'll be asleep in 20 minutes anyway.

My mom gets the DVD, puts it in, and hits play. All of a sudden a flurry of images appears on the screen- my mom shrieks, and frantically starts hitting buttons in an attempt to get whatever was on the TV, off the TV. Turns out Mom had not rented Dreamer, but instead rented The Dreamers, an NC-17 film about sexcapades in Paris in the 1960's....


We played poker.

Oh great. The significant other put that movie on our Netflix after he saw that chick in "Kingdom of Heaven." Said it would be "interesting." At least I now have a heads up to drink a bit before watching that one.

Maybe it will be more erotic then the "Nylon Porn."
