Scene from a writer’s day

SETTING: My world

Me, to my son’s English girlfriend: If I write a story with a British character, will you read it to make sure she sounds authentic?

Girlfriend: Certainly! What’s the story about?

Son: Zombies, right? Zombies!

Me: No…

Girlfriend: What do English zombies sound like?

Son, in falsetto voice: “Braaaiiins, dahling!”

Girlfriend: Or, “Please, sir, may I have–”

Son: “–some braaaiiins?”

This is my life.
