Background: The Madre has finals this week, so my dad went down to Florida by himself to pack up my brother and bring all of his stuff home.

The Madre: Some things never change. I was just talking to your father and I asked how the packing was going. He told me that when he got there the girls had everything almost completely packed up.

fifi: The girls????

The Madre: Apparently your brother conned his girlfriend and her friend into packing up his room for him. Your father says they did a very nice job and seemed very nice. I’m sure it’s better than anything your brother could have done. But still, it’s so wrong.

fifi: You have to admit the boy has skills. I hope Dad at least bought them dinner.

The Madre: It is going to be a long summer.
