Amusing anecdote

Things kids say September 11th, 2006

An actual transcipt of a conversation I had with two kids today:

I see kid A copying kid B’s homework, so I head over and loom.

Me: What are you doing?

Kid A looks flummoxed.

Kid B: Yeah! I thought you were copying these! [Indicates notes on same page as homework.] You jackass!

Me: Hey, now, watch the name calling!

Kid B claps his hands over his mounth and looks abashed.

Kid A, under his breath: You call me a jackass. . .

I choose to be amused by this because “jackass,” much to the chagrin of my parents, is the epithet of choice for Kevin and me.
