BRODY: "McKenna and I think that when someone dies, they come back as someone else."
ME: "That could be true. I don't know."
BRODY: "I think I lived in Japan and my name was Takito."
2. After Charmaine put hair extensions in my hair producing the illusion of great length and volume:
BRODY: "That looks good, mom."
ME: "I know. Do I look younger?"
BRODY: "Your hair looks younger."
3. After I finally realized that Gunnar was trying to get in the house since he forgot his key and it was fricking freezing outside and he had been out for a while (he didn't ring the doorbell, so it's not completely my fault):
ME: "Gunnar, what are you doing?"
GUNNAR: "Trying to get in a window. Thank's alot mom." (spoken in a very sarcastic tone)."
ME: "Where's your key?"
GUNNAR: "In my room." "And on top of that I just found out that that an 8th grader killed himself over Christmas break and I knew him."
ME: Very huge gasp with hands over my face. "Oh my God. What happened?"
GUNNAR: "His parents were fighting and he went and got one of his father's guns and shot himself."
ME: Another very huge gasp. "Oh my God."
