After what?


I’m sitting in the living room reading Invitation to a Beheading. I’m indulging myself after a long day, and Nabokov is painting colors and feelings in my mind and heart.

Mom: Did you have lunch?
Me: *looking up* No, I’m not hungry.
Mom: When was the last time you ate?
Me: I had a little piece of cookie at around noon.
Mom: When was the last time you ate?
Me: Yesterday, I think?
Mom: Are you becoming an anorexic?
Me: Anorexics don’t eat ice cream.
Bro1: Why are you wearing black?
Me: I’m only half dressed. I was wearing white, too.
Bro1: You look weird!
Me: *looking down at my cotton black dress* Okay?
Bro1: Go change!
Me: Huh?
Bro1: You look like a psychotic version of you!
Dad: Are you going to have lunch?
Me: I don’t know. I need to shower before I decide.
Dad: You didn’t shower?
Me: Is my hair wet?
Dad: Why are you here reading then?
Me: I’m escaping reality for two minutes.
Dad: *Laughs* Why?
Me: Because I’m tired, and I don’t want to think of all the things I have to do.
Dad: I wonder what would happen if your books finished.
Me: That’s why they won’t. They like to keep you wondering.
Bro2: Hey!
Me: Hey..
Bro2: What are you reading?
Me: A Nabokov that wouldn’t interest you
Bro2: Why?
Me: Because it interests me!
Bro2: No, I meant why wouldn’t it interest me?
Me: Yeah, that’s what I answered.
Btw, my brother doesn’t read. If a book “interests” him, I read for him.
Next time, I’ll just read in my room.
