Conversation before school this morning between Josh, age 12, and Emma, age 10...
Emma: (to no one in particular:) Josh was talking to some girls (said like she just ate raw squid) yesterday. "Josh and Ashley sittin' in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g..."
Josh: So what? What's your problem? You have friends that are boys.
Emma: I hate boys. Especially 4th grade boys. They're just a bunch of show-offs.
Josh: The way I see it, I want to get married in the temple so I can have an eternal family and live with Heavenly Father again someday. That requires me talking to girls. So back off!
(I pretended to be reading the paper. Good dialogue, no?)
