(scene opens in cluttered dining room)
Delta: And my friend at school dyed her hair today!
Me: (mildly) Oh yeah? What color.
Delta: Purple! She looks like a brand new human!
Me: Did you want to color your hair again during Spring Break?
Delta: (delightedly) Yes! I want to dye it black!
Me: (makes a face) Black isn’t fancy. If you’re doing to dye your hair, you should do it a fancy color.
Delta: (determinedly) Black is fancy! Black is the color of suits and suits are fancy so black is a fancy color.
Me: (moderately impressed) Well then. I guess we’re going to dye your hair black
Delta: (gleeful once again) You lied!
Me: No, I didn’t lie. You just changed my thinking.
