Mommyo: “The Eight-Year-Old actually accused me this week of geeking out over Jane Austen.”

Uncle Phil: “She’s not incorrect.”

(I would like to note for the record that at this point, Uncle Phil had no idea what had actually prompted The Eight-Year-Old’s accusation. He merely assumed that whatever the context for the comment was, The Eight-Year-Old was fully justified in making it.)

Mommyo, indignantly: “It’s not geeky to adore Jane Austen.”

Daddyo: “Uh… you’re gonna need a dictionary.”
