Beta: (runs in) Mom! Look!
Me: (looks up from laptop)
(Beta proudly wearing a Chicago Cop leather jacket)
Me: Oh my god. It fits you.
Beta: I know! Dad didn’t think it was going to fit!
Me: You should wear that to school.
Me: Because it’s cool and deserves to be worn. Your Aunt K painted the back of that jacket.
Beta: She did?
Me: Yeah. Your dad asked how much she charged and she said $100. $150 if she didn’t like someone. So your dad paid her $200.
Beta: That’s awesome. But why?
Me: Just in case.
