X: My mom is so mean to me. Your mom is so nice.
Y: No, mine is mean! She's nice in front of my friends, but she's really mean to me.
X: No way. I've never even seen your mom get mad.
Y: Oh, she got really mad at me over break.
X: What for?
Y: I don't even remember. But she was really mad.
They had neared my desk at this point, and I couldn't help but interject: "I'll bet you were getting sassy. Right?"
Y: Probably. I'm sassy a lot.
Y: I'm really mean to my mom sometimes.
X: Me too. I'm so mean.
A week later, I can still remember this conversation, and it still makes me laugh. If only their parents could see this, I think they would take heart.
