Collateral Damage

by on September 9, 2015

“Hi, Mom? Yeah, I’m gonna be late comin’ home. I was downtown during the invasion? Some masked dude totally wrecked my car. … I don’t know the guy’s name, Mom. He just grabbed my car and, like, smacked a robot with it. Jerk.”

    The trials and tribulations of teenagers.
    That last “Jerk” was perfect. And the frustration with a mom asking too many questions.

  2. Great title for this.

    And mom being a mom will bombard her baby though a teen with questions.

  4. I can picture the entire scene. it is so realistically done.

  5. LOL, Such a vivid telling. Like Ruby I can see the whole scene playing out in front of my eyes. I can even hear the teenagers voice plainly. Brilliantly done! As my teenager would say…that is so on point!

  6. Ha! This is perfect! Such a clever idea!! Love it 🙂

    Ditto, this is great. You can totally hear the kid’s frustration!

  8. Loved this! I often wonder about the collateral damage in these action movies.

  9. Brilliant. I just love this. So this is what the common folk feel like when the Avengers show up to save New York.
