Gamma: Cómo estás, mama!
Me: (thinks) Asi asi.
Gamma: No bueno?
Me: Just tired, baby. (hangs up jacket)
Gamma: I want to learn Japanese! Konnichiwa!
Me: Konnichiwa. You can learn Japanese if you want, although that might have to wait until college. I’m sure the local schools aren’t offering.
Gamma: You’ll have to learn it too so you can help me!
Me: (snort) I can’t keep up with the ones I was trying to learn before and now you want me to add Japanese to the mix? Japanese is very difficult.
Gamma: (brightly) Just like me!
Me: (pauses, processes, kisses Gammas forehead) Technically correct.
Gamma: The best kind of correct.
