a conversation with my daughter

Daughter: Mom, your negativity is messing up my metabolism.

Me: What?

Daughter: Your negativity is messing up my metabolism.

Me: Because I think you’re silly for scooting around on the skateboard from the living room to the kitchen?

Daughter: Yes.

Me: Ooohhhh-kaayyy. Do you know what that means?

Daughter: No. It just sounds smart.

Daughter: (a few minutes later) What is metabolism?

Me: A scientific term commonly referred to as the rate at which your body burns calories. You can look it up in a dictionary or online.

Daughter: Oh. That sounded silly, huh? No wonder you looked at me funny.
