Overheard at the Wright Household

Conversation with the Princess:

Princess: “Today the boys bodder me.”

Me: “They bothered you again?”

Princess: “They bodder me EVERY DAY! One say ‘Marry to me’ and he say , ‘Isn’t Ping-Ping beautiful.’ He say it VERY LOUD. First period, twelve people in the class. Everyone look at me.”

The poor beautiful princess is beleagured by uninteresting boys every day. I am reminded of Akane at the beginning of Ramna 1/2 shouting "Hate boys! Hate boys! Hate boys!" as she beats up the boys who are waiting to date her.
