Savannah: Mooooom! I don't like wearing this shirt!
Me: Why not? It looks so cute on you.
Savannah: It's too tight and it hurts my sensible armpits!
Me: Uh ..................................... Your what who now? "Sensible" armpits?
Savannah: Yes! *exasperated sigh and eye roll* I have very sensible armpits!
Me: *snort chuckle gasp*
Savannah: It's not funny! It really does hurt them. They're very sensible.
Me: I'm sorry it's just... I wish I had sensible armpits too.
Savannah: Hey mom! *huge grin* You'll never guess what happened at school today.
Me: Well, you're probably right so, why don't you just go ahead and tell me.
Savannah: Well, there's this boy in my class and he likes me. He has a huge crush on me. *giggle*
Me: Oh really? And just how do you know?
Savannah: Because after I chased him and caught him, I held him down and made him tell me.
Me: Oh... uh... well that's, ummm.... wow.
I can't help but think how awkward that's going to be when she starts doing that to her dates as a teenager.
