conversation


Lena: Mama, I like your shirt!
Me: Oh, honey, thank you!
Me: (realizing I am wearing a plain black turtleneck.) ...um, so you like black?
Lena: No, I like pink.
Me: I know you do. Well, um, thanks for liking my shirt.
Lena: I was just kidding!
Me: Ah.
Lena: And Mama, Daddy was just kidding, too.
Me: Okay...
Lena: And my friend at school was just kidding. And my other friend was just kidding. And my teacher was just kidding.
Me: ...um...
Lena: Mama?
Me: ...yes?
Lena: Mama, we're ALL just kidding.
