So Jessica comes home to tell me about a new student who is learning boundaries.
Me: Tell your teacher if he’s too much of an ass.
Jessica: I will, except I won’t call him an a-s-s.
Me: Probably wise.
Jessica: Did you use bad language at school?
Me: Not in front of anyone who would call my mother.
Jessica: Did your parents use bad language?
Jessica: Then where did you learn it?
Me: Probably from my friends.
Jessica: Your friends? So you used bad language with your friends. You still use bad language with your friends.
Jessica: Do your friends use bad language with other people?
Me: I guess.
Jessica: Or maybe it’s just you.
Me: Wait, I’m the bad influence on other people?
Jessica: I did not say that. That is something you figured out for yourself.
