So my mom and I had to watch my 10 year old cousin for 2 days in a row.
Yesterday when she came we watched Pokemon episodes. I told her they were very old and had “ancient” commercials on them. These DVDs were sourced from my tapes from ’98, ’99 and 2000. While were eating dinner she was prank calling restaurants and stuff. We sort of watched cartoons. I was paying attention more than her. She was doing that “Is your refrigerator running?” joke. For some reason she managed to fool somebody. XD She was just doing random dumb things like singing songs and yelling “Pikachu!”in the phone. I told her about “Prince Albert in a Can”, but she didn’t know what that was.
For some reason she thought it was funny when I sang the “Carmen Sandiego 2020” song. I was trying to describe it, but it was easier for me to just sing it instead. She is not familiar with that one or the original. When I played her them she didn’t like either song. And she didn’t like their old song “Hula Holiday”. Later I got a hankering to listen to the Weird Al song “Phony Calls”. I think the first time I heard it was on the Dr. Demento show. Then I thought if she did listen to it would she even know it was a parody of TLC’s “Waterfalls”? Or who TLC even is?
She came back again today. No prank calls today though. I did have a really funny spiel and place she could call. But my mom said I could not encourage her to make prank calls. I think she was bored because all we watched on tv was Classic Concentration, the NHL all star game, and boxing. While I told her about the Fox hockey robots and the glowing puck. Which came out 14 years before she was born. And about some NBC commentator named Pierre. Who my dad thought I made up for some reason. When I told her about my cell I made out of chewed gum in 5th grade she thought it was so funny. She also thought the leprechaun skit I was in when I was in 7th grade was funny too. She though it was really funny when I was saying some app was like a Talkboy that took cassettes. I sounded like an old person rambling. We did watch more Pokemon though. I didn’t realize my homebrew DVDs had some rare episodes on them.
