[Brady]: Hey, guys, welcome to the Reading Regatta Update! I scored pretty big this week!
[Auntie Obvious]: I thought you were on vacation last week. Again.
[Brady]: I read at night! I flipped on Kendall (my e-Reader has a name – like yours is named Libby).
[Auntie Obvious]: Oooh, I’ll bet The Mommylorian loved that.
[Brady]: Dark Mode has a lot of useful properties.
[Auntie Obvious]: So what was your big haul?
[Brady]: I ready Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows this week, which were both “Whitewater Rafting”, which is 1,000 points each. BOOM! So with those and the Point Break, I have 6,860 points.
[Auntie Obvious]: Well done! I read The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby by George Beard and Harold Hutchins and St. Patrick’s Gargoyle by Katherine Kurtz.
[Auntie Obvious]: Yes! St. Patrick’s Gargoyle is a great book!
[Brady]: I’m talking about the Kindergarten Book.
[Auntie Obvious]: I *told* you last week that I might read some Captain Underpants. He has an important cameo in this story. I just need to figure out how to do the points. Does it count as a book? Or a comic book?
[Brady]: It counts as a comic book. Small Splash, because it isn’t a collection.
[Auntie Obvious]: Dude, it was like 100 pages long.
[Brady]: I only see one comic.
[Auntie Obvious]: I can’t believe you are quibbling with me over 15 points when you have like fifty kajillion points, and I have, like, twelve.
[Brady]: Rules are rules. ::shrugs shoulders::
[Auntie Obvious]: Fine. So now I have 2,965 points. So what’s your final Point Break Selection for the Regatta?
[Brady]: Mine is the brand new Power Monkey story, Power Monkey: Dawn of Darkness.
[Auntie Obvious]: Mine is ‘Twas Three Weeks Before Christmas: MCU Edition. I know it isn’t Christmas, but we got loads of MCU scoop from San Diego ComicCon. I can’t believe you got to visit the The ComicCon Museum. I am sooooooo jelly. Grape jelly. Strawberry jelly. Raspberry Jelly.
[Brady]: It was really cool. I got to see a bunch of Marvel and DC props. But there’s no place like home.
[Auntie Obvious]: Unless your home is Uranus ::gigglesnort:: The Adventures of Super Diaper Baby had Uranus jokes! In fact, I wonder if there was a Super Diaper Baby callback in Geoff the Ghost 2: Finding Pumpkin.
[Brady]: I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I might tend to incriminate myself.
[Auntie Kimberly]: Sir, have you at any point in your existence on Planet Earth laughed at a Uranus joke?
[Auntie Obvious]: Thank you for your honesty. Uranus jokes are always funny! Time for us to run. Say the thing.
[Brady]: Keep Reading…Sail On!
