…so I told him of an awesome internet site he’d love. A short little webcomic he could finish in a half hour, called homestuck. Every 10 minutes he asks me if it’s almost done, and every 10 minutes I tell him he is. This has been going on for 3 hours. He has a math test tomorrow.
you literally punished someone by telling them about homestuck
