Snippet: Attitude, Attitude

As reported by one of Flora’s daycare ladies:

Flora was drawing a picture of people. One of the other children said, “That’s Flora’s mom with a big belly.”

Flora responded, “My mom doesn’t have a big belly!”

The DCL weighed in, “That’s right, Flora’s mom is tiny.”

Flora, to DCL, in a voice dripping with scorn, “My mother isn’t tiny. She’s thin.”

I really have to work on her tone with adults.
