The following exchange took place today between me and an 11-year-old member of the household who wanted to be left alone to chat with pals via Facebook and BlackBerry while watching TV. I wanted to vacuum his bedroom. The light was on, the curtains drawn, it was about 11 am.
Me: "Why is the light on and the curtain drawn in broad daylight?"
Him: "Natural light sucks balls."
Me: "But natural light happens to be free, as in, we don't have to pay for it."
Him: "Well what about at night?"
Me: "Well that's what the LIGHTS ARE FOR! DOYYY!"
