Now, years later, it is my turn to be the dad. Remembering how unfairly persecuted I felt when I rkles pick up my dates, I do my best to make my daughter's suitors feel even worse. My motto:
You can just toss them in the trash. Can I, because that's the kind of thing I live for. Don't read that. Well, it's my house, my trash. So this art competition It's so not a big deal, some statewide thing. You've always been a great artist. I still have that bunny you drew me. I was five, and it was a giraffe. Well, still, you showed a remarkable command of light and color.
I don't need to enter a contest. I don't care what people think, I do it for myself. Well, it would be nice to let people see it. Come on, Care Bear, put yourself out there. Don't hide. All right. You know, sometimes in life, the biggest risk is not taking one.
Did you read that on a bumper sticker? Actually, yeah, it was on the parked car Bridget nearly hit. I got Kerry to enter an art competition by turning on the Hennessy charm. I'm gonna go create, so don't even ask when I'll be coming out of my room. So how did your shoe shopping go with Rory? He's riding his bike over them so they don't look new.
That's nice. Did you get the milk? It's not so easy, is it? Ha ha! Bridget, how's it going? Oh, great, this car maintenance stuff is so cinchy. Whose legs are those? Please tell me you didn't run over somebody. She's not "our girl. I don't want you showing her around anything. Dude, maybe you should change your oil more often. It was like mud in there.
Really, Daddy, it should be done every 3, miles. So, you changed the oil? Is that my favorite Michigan sweatshirt? Yeah, and it's real comfy. Get out. I wanted to give Bridget a kiss goodbye. I know. What is your damage? God, you told me you want me to learn to change the oil. Yes, you. I was, but he came over and he's all, "You're doing it wrong.
You really think you can get through life on looks alone? Well, you can't. Please let me get my license today. I promised Amber I'd drive her by Griffin's to see if Tiffany's car is in the driveway.
We already know it is. God, Tiffany is such dirty business. As dirty as Tiffany's business may be, you didn't hold your end of the bargain. But, I need to drive to get places today. You're gonna have to think of other ways to get places. I need more boyfriends. You know, Dad is such a jerk. He backs out of our deal 'cause I let a cute guy work on the car.
Dad's a hypocrite, I hate him. He's totally on me about getting my license. He's acting like he's some kind of car-driving God guy. Cool painting. I don't get Dad. You keep saying the same thing over and over again. You have to take a stand. Like I'm taking a stand with my artwork. I'm gonna show those judges something they have never seen. You're right. I've gotta get Dad to take me seriously. Kerry, you look serious all the time, how do you do it?
