Keith comes into Luke's room, saying, "Come on, Tara Reid, you're going to be late." If anyone actually understands that reference, can you please let me know? Luke immediately pulls a shirt over his shoulder, hiding something from Keith, who, of course, notices right away. Luke pulls the shirt away and says, "Check that out!" Keith walks toward him and says, "Tell me that's a joke." He shakes his head: "Wipe it off, okay?" Luke says point-blank, "Keith, it's a tattoo." Like that's the most normal thing in the world for a sixteen-year-old to do on a like Wednesday night: go off, get drunk and get scarred for life. Oh boy. ["Also, like any tattoo parlor would take a kid who's both underage and drunk. Doesn't happen." -- Sars] Keith says, "Of what?" Luke says quietly, "It's an ancient symbol for fun." Heh. Keith: "Oh, for fun? Because I thought it was for freaking fool." Luke tries to defend himself, but Keith's still on that whole lecture circuit: "Luke! Your mom trusted me. She's gone five days and now you scar yourself for life." Luke insists that it's "just a tattoo." Keith rages, "It's a tattoo, there's no 'just'!" Pause. "What were you thinking? You're out half the night, you're drunk, and now you've got a tattoo? What? Did you join the navy too?" Heh. Keith continues, "You took advantage of me, Luke, you'd-a never pulled a stunt like this if your mother was here." Luke fights back a bit: "What stunt? You mean actually enjoying myself for once?" First of all, really dumb to get a tattoo on your shooting shoulder the week of a really big game, because it's going to be so sore that you might not be able to even lift your arms above your head. Second, that tattoo is huge and probably would have taken the artist about an hour to two to do. Third, the proliferation of Chinese characters out there tattooed on people bodies is one thing, but to get a word like "fun"? How embarrassing is that going to be when you're sixty and telling the grandkids the story? Looks like Luke actually needs to find his halo -- he turns into an idiot when it goes missing. Luke snits, "You said it yourself, my mom's not here, is she?" Keith points at him: "Your ass is grounded." Then he tries to walk out the door, but Luke calls out to him. Keith turns back around: "Bread and water, hardcore grounded, starting now." Who knew Keith could play parent so well? Before he leaves the room, he says quietly, "I expected more from you."
