Last week Sophie was telling me how she and a schoolmate got into an argument, and on the playground, the schoolmate stuck her tongue out at Sophie…
"I can't believe she did that!" Sophie said.
I felt badly for Sophie, and with a sympathetic tone, I asked, "What did you do when she did that?"
"I called her an oompa-loompa," she replied.
"What?" I asked, incredulously. "You called her an oompa-loompa??" SOPHIE!"
Sophie looked at me calmly and said, "Mom. I'm not always the nice girl, you know."
Ah well. At least she's honest. And at least she didn't call her Augustus Gloop.
