We have this sort of inside joke. I tell her I am "burning up", which basically would mean I am getting angry. Then she says she'll "douse the fire" or "use a fire extinguisher". We have this conversation quite often. This time, she not only spoke her response, but also made sound effects and pretended to shoot me with a hose or something! I seriously was freaked out, because now I know for sure my grandma is not a harmless old lady after all, if she likes to pretend she is shooting people.
Two of my friends and I somehow ended up talking about the propositions during brunch - you know, those things we vote on in the USA. They were talking about people who wanted to vote no on Proposition 8 (which I will just say is regarding whether gay people should be allowed to marry).
Me: Isn't that a good thing?
M and N (in place of their names): No!
N: If you vote no, you're letting gay people marry.
Me: But that's good, right?
*M and N back away*
M: It's not...normal. For there to be gay people.
*I remember a similar comment from my mom, and mom's friend*
Me: But everyone should get to eat wedding cake! Who doesn't love cake? (besides myself)
Anyhow, I should return to doing my homework right now, and stop being distracted by the Internet and my large pile of Halloween candy. (It is really tempting! I get hungry just from looking at food most of the time. Unless it's some gross vegetable I can't recognize, with sauce and oil all over it.) I've already eaten multiple pieces today! I don't know what I'll do if I can't stop eventually.
