I can always count on my sister to point out the hilarity in situations. Especially since this year, she's been climbing the ladder of hilarity as I slowly slip down. God, I'm so boring lately.
Anyhow, I was chatting away with her this morning, telling her about one of my students who I have since named Obnoxio. He's only 6, and I know, I know, it's not nice to make up mean nicknames for young children. But look dudes. This kid is just plain old obnoxious. He always has something to say! Like, for example...
Me: Beethoven was a famous composer (factual, inoffensive, why argue?)
Obnoxio: Well there were other famous composers too you know
Me: Yep, there sure are! Do you want to name some others?
Obnoxio: Well I know who they are but I don't really feel like saying their names right now
Here's another one...
Me: Sounds like you did some good practicing! (God, I'm complementing the kid!)
Obnoxio: Well, I played...I didn't practice, I played.
So anyhow, I get a call from Obnoxio's dad today, about an hour before his lesson. The big news is that Obnoxio "threw up at the pool," so he can't have a lesson today. I text this to my sister, because I think it's funny and she texts back the following:
Karma's a bitch, obnoxio!
Hahaha. Mean nicknames for kids. Priceless.
