Foiled Again

Me: What's your "special" class today?

Z: Music.

Me: What do you do in music?

Z: Nothing.

Me: You must do something. Do you listen to music?

Z: The only time we get to listen to music is sometimes when we have time to do some coloring in class. Not during music class.

Me: Do you sing?

Z: We don't do anything.

Me: I don't believe it. You must do something.

Z: We just do whatever the teacher says to do.

Me: That's what I'm asking. What does the teacher tell you to do?

Z: Nothing. We just do whatever she wants.

Me: But what do you do during music?

Z: I don't know what we will do. I haven't had music class yet today.

Me: You must do something. What did you do last week?

Z: We didn't have class last week. It was spring break.

Me: Ah. Right.

Z: You don't have anything to say to that, do you?


  1. Ah yes, daughter like father...I remember another circular discussion with someone as to the the definition of the word 'date'.
    You guys are going to have so much fun as these girls get older and older and...well you get the idea.

  2. The main difference being, of course, that I was actually trying to understand what you meant when you used the word "date"... ha ha ha.
