Yes, but Susie Moore is not only my biggest fan.
She's pretty much everyone's biggest fan.
Mom sincerely thinks any accomplishment is a great accomplishment. That's why everyone likes her. She is easy to love, she is easy to impress, and while it is wonderful that I have the nicest mother in the world, she's also easy to bait...
Note: Don't forget Mom's southern accent as you read this in your head. I'll help you by adding some pronunciations in parenthesis.
The Scene: At Julia's house, Julia and Sloan are looking through Julia's old yearbook.
Sloan: Wow, your senior picture is...rough...
Julia: Yeah well at least I didn't hold up a map of Middle Earth in my senior class photo.
Sloan: At least I wasn't in the German club.
Julia: At least I didn't run for class secretary and lose.
Sloan: At least I wasn't in band.
Mom: *from kitchen* Hey! ("hay")
Julia: *head shaking* Oh no...
Mom: *walks into living room* Sloan, it might not have been like this on Bainbridge Island ("aye-lund"), but band was very cool at Julia's high school!
Sloan: *feigned innocence* Oh, I had no idea! *smirk at Julia*
Mom: They had over 250 members!
Sloan: *gasp* 250??
Julia: Mom...just don't...
Mom: And they won tons of contests!
Sloan: *overly enthusiastic* Wow! They must have been awesome!
Mom: They were!! And since Julia was the drum major, she was like, the leader of all of them! *widens eyes, sweeps arms out to denote the multitude of band members*
Sloan: Oh yeah, I forgot you were drum major! *pats Julia on back* My little leader of all those cool people!
Mom: *walking back into kitchen, talking over shoulder* So, while band might not have been as popular to all y'all in Seattle ("See-at-uhl"), just know that Julia was very popular, mostly thanks to band!
Julia: *puts pillow over face*
