“Please Don’t, I’m afraid it will cause actual brain damage.”

Ok, so this is an actual conversation I just had with my 15 year old.

Me:  I’m going to hit you with my book.**

Her:  Please don’t.  It’s really thick.  I’m afraid it will cause actual brain damage — Wait!  Who’s book is thicker?  *grabs her book and holds it up against mine*  Yours is thicker.  Just by a little bit though.

Not sure if she’s afraid or disappointed she can’t take me in a book fight…

** No teenagers were actually hit with a book.

CONTEXT:  After posting this yesterday it was pointed out that, without context, this may not come across as funny.  So, I give you — context!  We are huge fans of Doctor Who in our house.  We are even bigger fans of books.  A friend sent me the below image.  It’s from the Doctor Who episode that started a running joke in our house.  We have never actually hit each other with books (at least not on purpose.  Weeelll…. at least not hard enough to hurt.  Only in fun and only while giggling).

  1. Hahaha, actually it made me feel a bit bad. 🙂

    I understand reality is different. I had some traumatic experience in childhood and that’s the reason.

    I wish you a wonderful weekend.
