Background to this conversation. I have been bugging my daughter for two weeks to finish her profile on the College Boards website so I could sign her up for the March 1st SAT test (already missed the regular deadline; knew I would have to pay the late fee.) The profile includes identification of the type of college you want to go to, size of school, type of major, other interests, etc. Logged on this morning only to find out it is now too late (even with a late fee) to sign up for the March test.
Fast forward to text conversation with daughter:
Mama: You know, if you think you're going to get into the college you want, you better start taking this college stuff more serious.
Daughter: Well actually, I plan to be a stripper so I think I'm fine. [did I mention sarcasm is big in my house?]
Mama: Seriously. I had to fill out your profile for you. Just in case your career counselor asks, you are interested in agriculture or religious studies. [I didn't really.]
Daughter: Ummmm, how do I change that?
Mama: Figure it out, genious.
Daughter: Next time you try to be sarcastic, the correct spelling is genius.
