Guilty Conscience

"I noticed you bought yourself a couple of bags of almonds." Kid says.

"Yeah." Mrs F replies.

"I wonder what they taste like?" Kid asks.

"You've had almonds before; I think you like them. You can try them." Mrs F answers.

"Okay, good, because I felt bad about it, but I did try one." Kid clarifies.

"Oh, that's fine, they're healthy." Mrs F returns.

"I also noticed you bought some dark chocolate covered almonds..." Kid adds, then bursts out laughing.

disingenuous, (if I've spelled it correctly) would be the perfect word.

Also: hilarious!

perfect word! I was trying and trying to think of a great word for this post and couldn't think of it!

seriously - hats off to kid for her great line of thinking, even though (of course) you are right about it technically being lying... right now i'm torn between just cheering for her or applauding you for having such a smart cookie for a daughter ;)

Don't you just go around with a big old grin for how enjoyable she is?

Oh, she really cracks me up. She has such a sophisticated sense of humor for her age.
