Everyone in this house, EXCEPT ME, has gone totally NUTS!
Buffy's been acting like she's possessed by a June Cleaver demon or something. All I've heard her for the past 2 weeks is
Clean up your room, Dawn.
Do your homework, Dawn.
Eat your vegetables, Dawn.
Time to go to bed, Dawn.
I'm not kidding. Last night at dinner she actually wanted to talk about my daily requirement for leafy green vegetables and whether I was getting the required 8 hours of
sleep!! Mom didn't treat me like this when I was six years old.
Giles has gone off the deep end, too. Ever since he decided to stay he's been obsessed with "contributing to the household."
He mumbles about not wanting to be treated like a helpless child by Buffy any more (something I can totally get into!) He keeps talking about finding a job.
I told him it wasn't like he has to work or anything. A lot of guys his age are already retired.
And it's sure not like he needs the money. He has everything that Anya left him, plus a salary from the Council.
When I told him he should relax and take it easy he said he wasn't ready to be put out to pasture quite yet.
Whatever that means.
