In the car the other morning:
Me: So what do you have today?
Wombat: I have art! I want to use those things that are like crayons but they break easier.
Wombat: You know - they are like crayons. But they break. A lot.
Me: *thinks back to art classes* Oil pastels?
Me: Oh neat, you are using oil pastels? What did you draw?
Wombat: *sighs* I don't want to talk about it.
Me: Come on, tell me please!
Me: Please? I want to know
Wombat: Oh, look, isn't that tree pretty?
Me: *grumbles* I'll see it in your folder at the end of the week anyway
Wombat: Joke's on you! They hung them up in the hallway at school!
