I just screwed up the Tivo and promised Big Kid I'd record Dora while he took a bath and somehow it didn't work out that way.
I could hear him yelling from the bathroom, "Mudder? I told you to pause it. You know dat I told you dat." but the Tivo wasn't doing what I thought it was doing.
He marched out of the bathroom ready for a fight and seeing the image on the screen, not as he left it, totally pissed him off:
Big Kid: What happened here? What is da deal?
Ashley: I don't know, I tried to record it and I tried to pause it and somehow it got messed up.
Big Kid: So it is messeded up? After I told you to pause it? (Blinking back tears, corners of mouth pulling downwards)
Ashley: I'm sorry, okay? It was an accident.
Big Kid: Dest gib me da wemote control and I'll dest wewind it. You haf to hit da back arrow, I will help you do it.
Ashley: No. I tried that. Your show is gone, okay? It was an accident. I am sorry. I am done discussing it.
Big Kid: You made da wong choice. You made da wong choice and now you will get an X instead of a check. (Staring at me)
Ashley: (Staring back)
Big Kid: I'm dest going away now. I'm gonna go away. (Marching off towards room)
(Looking back) I'm going away now.
Ashley: K, bye.
(45 seconds later)
Big Kid: I'm gonna come out and help you. I'm pretty sure you dest need to wewind.
Ashley: No. That's not it. Just drop it. Dora is gone, no big deal.
Big Kid: It is a big deal dat you made a bad choice and you're not gonna get a check. You're gonna get an X.
Ashley: Okay, then you get an X for the time you erased my Wii high scores. Remember how bad you felt about that? But I was all like, "Don't feel bad, it isn't a big deal, I don't want you to be sad over this." Remember that? This is the same thing. I made a mistake, it was an accident, it is no big deal and nothing you would want me to feel sad about, right?
Big Kid: (avoiding eye contact)
Ashley: Would you want me to feel bad about this?
Big Kid: Yes. I feel bad about this. And dat time wif your wii scores? Dat was dest my mistake. I am sorry but I eben said I'd help you wif your bowling.
Ashley: Well I'm sorry too. I don't care about my Wii scores because I love you, love me enough to not care about Dora.
Big Kid: Sorry...
Ashley: Me too.
Big Kid: I'm dest feelin' weally bad dat you ewased it, I mean now I don't eben know what happened.
