this is serious business, mad at you

I replied back to my mum a couple days ago. Told her that I had things to worry about. Very important, school related things, and that it really was a shame that I wouldn't be able to make it. And I sent it through an email because the idea of my mother owling me again doesn't work for me.

She took the hint on at least that part, thankfully, and replied back that my cousin was family and that it was over the holidays, anyway. And she implied that whatever I was doing here wasn't so important that I couldn't go.

I can't win with that woman.


Well if you have to go, you have to go. Maybe you'll have more fun than you think you will.
It's my family, Padma. I doubt it.
Well it's only a few days, right? I mean..it's not like they're forcing you to be there for a...week..or anything.

Are they?
I really hope not.
Have you ever thought of just telling the woman that you don't like your cousin?
Morag! That would be rude!
Well, she'd probably leave him alone.
You can't just...say something like that. You're supposed to respect your family.
Why not? I respect my family, but if I disagree, I'll disagree. Personally, I think Anthony should take Bulstrode's offer if he won't just come out and tell his mother. Broken bones do heal.
Isn't it a bit extreme to have someone break his legs so that he doesn't have to spend time with his family?
Morag, I don't feel like dealing with you this right now.
Well, not to be completely tactless, but I don't really care because I think we need to talk.
About what?
Well, about your behavior yesterday, of course! It was completely uncalled for.
Morag, can we not talk about this on the vu?
Not that I'm willing to help but I could break your legs or something equally fun for me to break.
Er, no thanks?
Then have fun with the family you clearly are looking to avoid.
I'm sure there are other ways to avoid my family, though.

If I'm still looking for a way out in a month, I might take you up on it, though.
I'm sure you, being the smart Ravenclaw, will have it all figured out by then.

My offer is open for a limited amount of time. You might want to hurry, darling.
Does it look like I care?
Somehow, I'm sure I wasn't looking to see if you did.

Like always, you never think of me.
You say that like we're friends or something.
Are you catching any irony, Goldstein?
