So, what happens when Tya, the Girl Who Imprudently Misplaced Her Ipod Headphones takes a long roadtrip seated beside Sev, Possibly the World's Fussiest Teenaged Boy?
Tya: Sev. Dude. Lend me Your iPod headphones. I'm desperate here.
Tya (pleading): Dude! Please! Help me out!
Sev (implacable): No. Way.
This initial exchange is followed by further exchanges along these same lines, involving heavy use of the words, "dude", "please" and "no".
The sanity of Tya is also called into question several times.
Finally, after several minutes of this:
Sev (resigned): Alright.
He sighs heavily and pulls a small bottle of hand sanitizer out of his pocket.
Tya looks at it blankly for a moment, then grabs it and puts a bit on her hands. She is distinctly heard to mutter under her breath the phrase "You are SUCH a freak."
Tya then puts out her hand to take the headphones, which are not forthcoming.
Sev: Your ears.
Tya (disbelieving): What?!
Sev (patiently, as though talking to a particularly stupid dog): Put sanitizer in your ears.
Tya: You are beyond a freak. I don't know what you are.
She squeezes a bit more of the blue gel onto her fingers and rubs some inside of each ear.
Sev inspects to make sure the interior where the headphones will touch her ears is completely covered.
He finds she has missed a spot and makes her apply more.
Tya (through clenched teeth): Are you happy now?
Sev (doubtfully handing over the earphones): I guess. This really isn't hygienic, you know.
Tya (grabbing the earphones): Über. Freak.
The above is something that could have possibly happened while we were driving to my MIL's place in the northeast of France last week, if my eldest daughter was very disorganised and my son a borderline OCD case....
