The Seven-Year-Old gets even

Nearly every day, the Seven-Year-Old comes home from school with a tale of how one boy or another grossed her out at lunch so badly that she couldn’t eat — generally by chewing with his mouth open — a teachable moment if ever there was one — or by playing out bathroom humor with (in)appropriate sound effects around the lunch table.

Except for one glorious day last week.

The Seven-Year-Old, in between bites of her after school snack: “I grossed out all the boys at lunch today.”

Mommyo: “Really? How?”

The Seven-Year-Old: “You know all that jam you packed for me? I told them it was space goop.”

Mommyo: “Huh. You’d think the boys would be all over that. Why did it gross them out?”

The Seven-Year-Old, proudly: “I said, ‘This space goop isn’t even fresh!'”

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
