Bug: There’s hardly anybody in lecture today. Boo. I should get bonus points.
Mom: I’ll give you 25,000….will that help?
Bug: What am I going to do with 25,000 Mom points? Are they like Schrute Bucks?
Mom: Yes, you can redeem them for kisses, meals and office supplies!

“It doesn’t bother me much that I hear mice in the ceiling. It does bother me that they have to make noise when I’m trying to sleep. How inconsiderate.”

Bug: Why do old lecture halls not have heat? I don’t like having to wear my coat in class.
Mom: Mebbe you need to take an empty fruit can and some wood pieces ahd have it on your desk and warm yourself with it.
Bug: LOL! I think the university frowns on open flames in non-chemistry classes.
Mom: Well, I figure for $10,000 a year I have the right to make sure my daughter doesn’t die of hypothermia before she graduates. 🙂
Bug: Haha, they figure if you can afford to send your daughter to a $10,000 a year university, you can afford to buy her some artic gear for winter classes.
