Scene: Inside a suburban home.
Actors: a mom, 9-year-old son, and 6-year-old daughter
6-year-old: Mom, your butt is jiggly.
9-year-old: No, it’s not.
Mother responds with a look of relief. Secretly, she decides the 9-year-old is her favorite.
9-year-old: It’s not jiggly. It’s flat.
Mother is perturbed. She does not have a favorite anymore.
6-year-old: It’s flat AND jiggly.
Mother goes to kitchen for bottle of wine. Children giggle.
And how’s it going around your house these days?
