It's one of our "things". Watch Survivor. Discuss strategy and the meaning of life.
This episode was the one where the Survivors were visited by a family member to "help" them on a challenge. Lots of tears and hugging, of course. Then fierce competition (where the ones with the most athletic family members won, while the rest could only wish their gene pool was a little more athletic.)
Then afterwards, this...
DASH: So mum if you were on Survivor who would you pick to be the family member that visits you?
ME: Well, probably Dad, cos you can't pick kids, but maybe if you were a grownup by then I'd pick you, son.
DASH: Yeah, you'd want to pick somebody who would be good in challenges and help you win. But probably by the time I was old enough for you to pick me, you'd be like,, um, 65 or something so they probably wouldn't pick you for Survivor *laughs cheekily*
ME: Hahaha, yeah, so maybe it'd be YOU who would be on Survivor and I'd get to come and visit YOU *confident in my place as beloved mother*
DASH: Um sorry mum but I'd probably pick Dad cos he'd be, um, better in the challenges. If I picked you, sorry but I think we'd lose...
ME: *not offended at all cos I know he's right* Yeah, ha, you're right. I'd be pretty useless in challenges...
DASH: Or maybe Dad would be a bit too old too, maybe I should pick Scrag... or even Fab...
MISS FAB: Awwwwww! *hugs him* THAT's for saying you'd pick me *dead-arms him* and THAT's for saying you wouldn't pick mum... Don't worry mum, I'D pick you!
(It's good to know where you stand, right?)
