Since we watched the musical Les Miserables, Shorty has been off and on reading the novel Les Miserables. She normally finished full novels in a matter of days but Les Miserables took her much longer than that because she said it was difficult to read. Being a book that was written some 150 years ago or so. So last night at dinner…
Me: So… gave up reading Les Miserables already?
Shorty: No… I finished it already.
Me: Oh really? How was it?
Shorty: Basically the ending is really sad la. Unlike the musical, in the book Marius actually drove Valjean away from Cosette after he learned about Valjean’s past. So Valjean knew he was not welcomed and for the sake of Cosette just stayed away. Then he began to fall sick and was dying one day when Thenadier showed up at Marius’s house and told him the truth about Valjean. And Marius later realized that Valjean was the one who saved him from the barricade. So Marius and Cosette rushed to see Valjean but he was in his last few moments by then. So he dies…
Me: But before he dies he gives Cosette a letter right?
Shorty: Hmm I can’t remember… *pulls out kindle*. Nah why not you read the last chapter. It’s quite nice.
Me: Ok… *starts reading*
Shorty: *peeks over* HAH… not so easy to read right? “Thou art here!”.
Me: What? Thou art means you are here what. Wah think your husband is an idiot huh!
Shorty: Haha nono but the rest of the book was hard to read. It can spend one whole chapter to describe a church.
Shorty and I take turns to drive sometimes. When she drives I control the music in the car and when she drives she controls it. We both have a DJ name for ourselves. I call her DJ Shorts and she calls me DJ Fats. So just today, Shorty is driving…
Shorty: Ok DJ Fats! Play the music.
Me: *plays Party Rock anthem and sings along* SORRY FOR PARTY ROCKINGGGGG…. untz untz untz untz untz untz
Shorty: Change it please.
Me: What what’s wrong?
Shorty: Something without a beat please.
Me: Ok… I know just the song…. DJ FATS IN THE HAUSEEEEE YOOO… *plays the following song*
Shorty: Are you just trying to irritate me?
Shorty: Why? Who composed this song and why would he even do it?
At lunch today.
Shorty: Wanna go to North Korea fats?
Me: Hmmm let me think about it… how about No?
Shorty: Why not? Will be so adventurous. And we don’t need a visa to go.
Me: Ummm… no.
Shorty: Why? They organize guided tours so you’re all protected and all. Even the Google boss… what’s his name.. Larry Schmidt….
Shorty: Larry Schmidt went with his daughter. It’s Larry Schmidt right?
Shorty: So if Larry Schmidt who has so much to lose can go.. why can’t we?
Me: First of all. There is no Larry Schmidt. The ex CEO of Google is Eric Schmidt.
Shorty: Oh haha okok… and there’s a Larry in there somewhere right?
Me: Yes… that’s one of the Co-Founders and current CEO Larry Page.
Shorty: Haha okok… ohh…. just now I ask you if the name correct or not and you didn’t say no.
Me: I didn’t say yes either. I just wanted to see how far this will go.
