Reading Regatta Week 8 Update: Never Watch Old Yeller

[Brady]: We are two months in to the Reading Regatta! I am back from vacation, which is why I let Obvious post last week.

[Auntie Obvious]: I have some news. About the scoring.

[Brady]: Oh.

[Auntie Obvious]: Remember when I told you I accidentally counted too many points for those two books? I actually didn’t, because I was including the *prior* week’s books in my total. So I’ve actually never made a mistake. I thought I made a mistake, but I was wrong. So it cancels out! And my point total is now 2,200 – including putting back the points I erased by mistake.

[Brady]: Isn’t thinking you made a mistake a mistake?

[Auntie Obvious]: No! The two wrongs make a right!

[Brady]: That’s not the saying.

[Auntie Obvious]: Agree to disagree.

[Brady]: Who totally fell for the fake Andor poster on the Internet?

[Auntie Obvious]: Good grief. I make one teeeeensy little slipup, and you never let me forget it.

[Brady]: It was five minutes ago.

[Auntie Obvious]: So aaaaaaaanyway, what did you read this week?

[Brady]: ….

[Auntie Obvious]: Is this another one of your “suspense” things?

[Brady]: …

[Auntie Obvious]: OK, so you still have 2,960.

[Brady]: I started a couple of books, but I didn’t finish, because I was on vacation. And I didn’t even read the Point Break selections

[Auntie Obvious]: Well, I wasn’t on vacation, so I read three Rowing books: The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, The Christmas Pig, and The Ickabog. Thanks for loaning me those last two.

[Brady]: Anytime! So what are your Point Break selections this week? Mine is my brand new Hoodie Man 6: The Reaper’s Star.

[Auntie Obvious]: My selection is SO SAD, you should definitely not read it without a WHOLE BOX OF KLEENEX NEARBY. It is sadder than Bambi, and sadder than Old Yeller. It’s Auntie Kimberly Runs Out of Coffee.

[Brady]: Old Yeller wasn’t very sad.

[Auntie Obvious]: Dude, what’s wrong with you???

[Brady]: How did he get rabies? The owners were too irresponsible to give him a shot. You should definitely watch Avengers: Endgame instead.

[Auntie Obvious]: Maybe they didn’t have rabies shots for dogs back then.

[Brady]: Everything in that movie was old and cheesey and needs to get in the 21st century.

[Auntie Obvious]: OK, time to sign off. SAY THE THING.

[Brady]: Never watch Old Yeller!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[Auntie Obvious]: The other thing.

[Brady]: Keep Reading, Sail On, folks!

[Auntie Obvious]: …slowly bangs head on desk…
