Afternoon Conversation

Sam: "Mommy, did you know that I'm a genius?"

Me: "Yes! You are a very smart boy!"

Sam: "Because it's true. I'm a genius."

Me: "For sure."

Sam: "But when I'm at school, I have to *pretend* like I'm NOT a genius."

Me: "Why on earth would you have to do that?"

Sam: "Well, because when you're a genius, no one wants to play with you."

Me: "Oh, I see."
