I was going to call this C*R Talk, but I believe that name is already taken.
With any luck, I will remember this conversation verbatim. Or close to it.
Tonight we were driving home from swim class (anybody else out there who spends 80 minutes driving in the car for a 30 minute swimming lesson? Yeah, just me. Thought so.) and the conversation turned to imagination.
Jupiter: "I have a good imagination. I want to keep it."
Me: Yes, you do. I am not very imaginative. But I have other good qualities."
Jupiter: (In all seriousness). "Like what?"
Ouch. When I picked my head up off the steering wheel, I asked her if she could think of any. "Willing to drive 80 minutes in the car for a 30 minute swimming lesson" comes to mind. Just saying.
Jupiter: "Good at dressing badly."
She is not innacurate. Although I'm not sure it's one of my BEST qualities.
I am, however, pleased that she can use adverbs properly in spoken English.
