One of Audrey's current obsessions is the make and model of people's cars. As we're driving she'll notice a car that is the same as someone that we know but a different color, and she'll say the same annoying line every time.
"It's kind of red, but Blair's car is green, riiiiiyyyyyyyyyght?" Like so:
This translates to: "Look Mom, there's a Honda Civic. It looks just like Melanie's car except that one is silver and hers is blue." Which would be much more articulate, but on second thought just as irritating. Who gives a shit, riiiiiiiiyyyyyyyyyyyyyyght?
I started kind of ribbing her about it, and whenever she would start the line I would chime in for the "riiiiiiyyyyyyght" part. Which she doesn't like one bit. She started throwing these lines back at me which were much more appropriate than the car shtick:
"Mom! I've told you a million times!"
"Just ignore it!"
"How many times do I have to tell you?"
"Just worry about yourself!"
Whoa. I have no idea where she got those.
Now on the occasion that she makes one of her hundred-times-per-day car observation and I DON'T chime in, I get "Mom, I like you're ignoring it." Doesn't she just wish that the ABA-speak would work on me.
