L: Mom, I tried whaucamole at school today!
Me: Oh neat! Did you like it?
L: It tasted like slop and car gas!
L: Like, mixed together.
Me: Got it. You didn’t say that to the cook, did you?
L: No, but I’m saying it to you so you know I really tried it.
Me: Ah. Well. I’m proud of you for trying it.
L: The chips were good!
