Good morning, sunshine!

Actual breakfast table dialogue with Precious Girl, age 9:

"What do you want for breakfast, Precious Girl?"

"Nothing. I'm too tired."

"Can I get you some Cheerios?"

"No. I'm not hungry."

"Oatmeal?"

"No."

"How about a waffle?"

"I'm not hungry. I'm too tired."

"I'll make you a slice of toast with butter and salt."

"No."

"What do you want, then?"

"Nothing. I'm not hungry."

"The bus is coming soon."

"I don't care. I'm not hungry."

"I'll let you have Trix yogurt."

"I don't want anything."

"Are you sure?"

"Yes."

(pause)

"Better get your coat on. I hear the bus."

"What?"

"I said the bus is coming. You have to go to school now."

"Without breakfast?"

Oh my, I think I can see this same conversation repeated in 10 years with her boyfriend...about an entirely different subject :)
