Silly Monkey Stories #214 - Tragedy

(En español más abajo)
USA05/Feb/2013 – Carolina (15)
I'm in South Carolina, doing training at my Greenville office. At about 1:30 PM today, I got a text message from my daughter:
- Please don't get mad…
- What happened?
- …
- Talk!
- I got a 69 in Science :-(
And then I god mad:
- S**t. Do you know all the stuff that went through my mind between "Please don't get mad" and "I got a 69 in Science" ?
- Oh, OK. Sorry. My bad.
I wonder if she will ever realize that I had four mini-heart attacks in between those texts. Ah, those teenage years when a 69 in Science were a tragedy...

Estoy en Carolina del sur, haciendo un curso en la oficina de Greenville. A eso de la 1:30PM, me llega un mensaje de mi hija:
- Por favor no te enojes…
- Qué pasó?
- …
- Hablá!
- Me saqué un 69 en Ciencias :-(
Ahí es cuando me enojé:
- Mi**da. Sabés todo lo que pasó por mi mente entre "Por favor no te enojes" y "Me saqué un 69 en Ciencias?
- Oh, OK. Perdón. Mi error.
Me pregunto si se dará cuenta de que tuve cuatro mini-infartos entre esos dos textos. Ah, esos años de la adolescencia cuando un 69 en Ciencias era una tragedia...

  1. She won't understand that until she becomes a parent herself. You'll probably have many more conversations just like that one.
