With the school year only a week away from its end we all mooched around the house yesterday in various states of exhasution and done-inness.
Princess C-W was regaling me with stories from her week - who she spoke with, who was uncool right now, whether she preferred being a 'history boff' or a 'science nerd' and the general social interactions that go in in a mixed sex school (something waaaay outside my own academic experience).
"Yah so, anyway, Miranda Blaggleshorn has been going out with Adrian Scumswiggle for three months now and she STILL hasn't told her mother!"
The surprise in her voice was palpable. Long may she consider it completely normal to share all headline information with her mother.
Of course, I know I can live without hearing the details.
