Rockstarism #219 – Just Make Up Something
#219 Rockstar: Mum. Do you know what Grandmum's favorite penguin is? Me: Grandmum has a favorite penguin? Rockstar: <nodding convincingly> Yeah. She does. Me: Uh... Why? Rockstar: <like he's making a big announcement> Her favorite is the King Penguin. It doesn't peck you. Me: You mean other penguins peck you? Rockstar: <nodding convincingly> Yeah. They do. Me: Are you sure? Why?! Rockstar: I don't know. <shrugs> Ask Grandmum. Me: She didn't say anything about penguins, did she? Rockstar: <nodding convincingly> Yeah. She did. Me: How does someone end up talking about penguins, anyway? Rockstar: I said, "What's your favorite penguin?" Me: I mean WHY does anyone ask what someone's favorite penguin is?? Rockstar: <like I'm stupid> Be-cause, I want to know what her favorite penguin is.
