Gft has a new girlfriend. That is, he talks to her on the phone and they agree to "date," even though they never go anywhere together. Maybe they will, since they've only been dating for a week. Last night, he was cleaning his nails (he's a bit Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) about that, cuts them past the top of the nailbed ... ew) and so he put his phone down on the chair, on speaker. I was painting a kitchen wall, with-newsprint under my feet, so it's not like I was trying to be quiet. His girlfriend talked and talked and talked and difficult child got in a very few comments, and a few questions, and girlfriend said something, (don't know what it was specifically), and difficult child said, "You're starting to sound like my mother."
