I Was Here First.

This conversation actually happened at the base of the Marina City towers (my lifelong dream home) over the weekend:

D: I would love to live here.

Me: I would love to live here. I have wanted to live here since I was a kid.

D: Well, you’ve only wanted to live here longer than me because you’re…

Me: Because I’m…OLDER???? *rolling eyes* I KNOW. I’m older. I was here first.

D: Anyway, I want to live here.

Me: Sigh.

    Who says you can’t both live there? That’s every young twentysomething’s dream, right? To live next door to his Mom?

      I *actually* almost said something like that to him, but I figured I’d save it for an “emergency”. 🙂

    I get first dibs I have wanted to live there longer than you. I am a little older than you. But we can live on different floors and I’ll take the top floor.

      Oops, I forgot about that, Mom. Okay, I guess there’s room for all three of us. I want the top floor of the other tower.

    That is an intriguing building. I like the idea of all of you, all three generations, living there…. on different floors.

      It WOULD actually be kind of fun. 🙂

    Love this post AND the comments! Your family is completely adorable.

    I can’t compete with these comments, so I DON’T want to live there. Everyone in the building would be funnier than me.
