a recent conversation between the boys at dinner:
jack- every single day at recess, all the girls in my class chase me. like, ALL of them. not just sometimes, but every. single. day. (loud exhale)
chris- yeah, i remember that too!! the girls always chased me at recess!
j- really? (laughs) it's so annoying, huh!
c- yeah, it was annoying cause you just want to play, but there are girls following you. i always had like 3 or 4 girls chasing me. (winks at mom)
j- yeah, it's like my whole class. or maybe like 6 or 5 or something. (loud exhale) its so annoying.
for the record, ellie did attest to the truthfulness of jack's statement.
