Adam makes me laugh
Adam: Mom, remember how I told you I liked Cheyenne?
A: Well, I still like her, but I like Janessa, too.
S: Variety is good.
A: Yeah, well, Janessa lives by us.
A: So yesterday I was riding my bike home from school, and she was walking on the other side of the street. So she waved at me.
S: Wow--that's kind of fun.
A: No, because I didn't know what to do--and then I crashed.
S: (tries not to double over in mirth) YOU REALLY CRASHED!! THAT'S HILARIOUS!!!
S: Sorry. Did you hurt yourself?
A: No. But it was embarrassing.
S: And funny...
S: Sorry. Well, what do you mean, you didn't know what to do when she waved. Usually, if a girl waves, she wants you to wave back (demonstrates waving back, and giggles again).
A: Well, I just didn't know...
S: Let's practice. You be Adam, and I'll be the beautiful Janessa.
So then I waved, Janessa-like, and Adam waved back, laughing helplessly. We practiced three times. As we finished our last wave, DJ walked by us, muttering, "Seriously!! What mom DOES that?? You're so weird..."
