Conversations with 8th grade girls are so hard.

“Hi, how are you.”

“Good.”

“Getting a lot of work done?”

“Yeah.”

“How’s your grandma?  Is she back?”

“My grandma, she’s in Mexico still.  I hung out with my cousin.”

“Aw, that sounds fun.”

“Yeah.”

“Wait, do you have a rabbit?”

“…”

“Or, you have.. a cat?”

“Yeah, I have a cat.”

“Oh cool.

“…”

“Mm.”

“…”

“Do you smoke pot?  When?  Where?  Does your cousin give it to you?  How did you get it?  Do you do other things too?  Why are you posed like that in your Facebook picture?  Why are you so spacey in class?  You could be brilliant, you know.”
