CONVERSATION WITH MY 13 YEAR OLD

Scene: My son has just gotten back from visiting GG (great grandma).
  1. Me: What was GG doing?
  2. Son: She had news.
  3. Me: About what?
  4. Son: Oil prices are down. If you invest now, you will make money when the price goes back up.
  5. Me: What? Oh, do you mean she was watching the news?
  6. Son: Yeah.
    Said in a way that implies it should have been obvious.
  7. Son: Anyway, I told her about the (school) dance tonight. She asked if I was going to dance with a girl.
  8. Me: So will you?
  9. Son: I don't know.
    Starts walking away.
  10. Son: Probably.
