L: Mom, I tried whaucamole at school today!

Me: Oh neat! Did you like it?

L: It tasted like slop and car gas!

Me:….

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!
