Laura had an extra credit worksheet that consisted of a bunch of Valentine's-y trivia questions. Mom was quizing me last night not because she didn't know most of the answers, but because she wanted to see how smart I am. The only things we really learned are that my sister is well-read and that mom and I think way too much alike.
Mom: Who was the romantic hero in Wuthering Heights?
Mom: Yep! Heh- your sister wrote Heathcliff as two words.
Me: Like his first name is Heath and his last name is Cliff? Heath... Cliff.
Mom: Yeah, your sister's smart.
Me: Well it's not like she's read the book.
Mom: On the set of what movie did Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall begin their affair?
Me: Ooooo... um- The African Queen?
Mom: That's what I guessed too. But Lauren Bacall wasn't in The African Queen, wasn't that Katharine Hepburn?
Me: Oh, yeah. I guess it was.
Mom: To Have and Have Not is the correct answer. Kinda strange that we both made that mistake.
Me: Yeah. The African Queen is kind of a random answer. We must have like, the same brain.
On a different note- Did anyone watch GH yesterday? I've never been more furious with fictional characters. I was throwing things at the TV and yelling. It was crazy. Shut up Liz! Shut up Skye! WTF Jason!? I love you Lucky! SHUT UP LIZ!!
