Friday, February 24, 2012The Kid: Have you heard of that movie "Project X"
Me: Sure, classic 80s movie with Matthew Broderick, Helen Hunt and a monkey who knows sign language
The Kid: um...
Me: Yes, I'm aware that there's some new movie coming out called "Project X" about some kids who throw a party
The Kid: Yeah, well a friend of mine in [nearby city] is having a party like that for the movie and I wanted to know if I could go
Me: Some kid is having a party to emulate a movie about some kids who throw a party so big it, if I'm to believe the commercials, ends up burning down their neighborhood?
The Kid: What does emulate mean?
The Kid: Then, yes
Me: Then, no
