This is a conversation between Michael and I on the ride home from a not too great trip to the local outlets where a certain five-year-old may not have been behaving up to my standards.
Michael: Mommy, can we go to the bookstore?
Michael: Why not?
Me: Because of your charming behavior at the outlets.
Long pause while Michael considers what I just said, most likely trying to figure out a way to negotiate with me for a trip to the book store.
Michael: Mommy, what does "charming" mean?
Me: It means attractive or pleasing.
Short pause while I think about what I've just said.
Me: Also, the next word you may want to know the definition of is "sarcasm".
