Why do I always end up whining on Sundays?

We received no less than three phone calls last night from Mom, asking us what to do in Kingdom Hearts. On the one hand, it was kind of exasperating, because why the heck can't they find the supplies for the raft on their own? but on the other hand, it was kind of nice feeling important.

And so we were expecting to hear from Mom when she called this afternoon. What we weren't expecting was for her to ask to borrow our copy of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Now normally, this question wouldn't bother us at all. We like to lend our movies and stuff to people, because we like to feel important. And yet, somehow, whenever Mom asks to borrow something from us, it makes us upset. It was the same when she asked to borrow Harry Potter.

We're not sure exactly why this is, but we think it has something to do with respect. I said we like to feel important, but when Mom asks to borrow something, it feels like she's treating us more like we're convenient than important. Kind of like she only acknowledges us when we have something she wants and can't go get it for herself because it's a Sunday, or she doesn't want to pay for a new copy.

Or something. But now it's out of our systems, so it's all good. We just needed to whine. And I was going to do the Luke whining thing, but then I realized I don't know how to spell T, Ta... Tashi? Toshee? Tahssshyyyyye?

I can do this one though: "Where'd she go? Bring her back! Bring her back!"
