A: "Mom, is it bad to stick up my middle finger?"
La Mommy: "Yes. "
La Mommy: " It means that you don't like someone."
A: "What if I don't like someone?"
La Mommy: "No, I mean like REALLY not like someone. Like punch them in the face not like them."
A: " I still think I should practice at home."
At this point you stick up your pointer finger.
La Mommy: (Natural reaction) "That's not your middle finger."
A: " Carter told me it was."
La Mommy: (Shows her the correct finger) "No, it is this one. Remember, only practice at home."
Did I just correct her? Did I just show her the correct one? Damn-it, what was I thinking. On the glass half full side, she won't look like a fool in the 1st grade arguing with some smart mouthed little boy about the "middle Finger".
