conversations with an eight-year-old

me: So, are you enjoying school?

nephew: Oh yeah, I love it!

me: That’s awesome!  How many kids are in your class?

nephew (in snarky voice): I have no idea how many kids are in my class.  [translation: “Can’t you see I’m playing Mario Cart here and intend to do so for the next 45 minutes?  I don’t have time for your silly questions or anything you might call ‘conversation’… unless it pertains to beating ‘the boss’ or – if you are lucky – I will school you on the Wii version of Mario Cart.”]


*note: No adults or children were harmed in the taking of this picture.  I was driving, so Steve safely took the shot from the passenger seat.
