There’s a momentary pause and the rustling of the phone being handed off can be heard.
Aowyn: Hi Misty! What are youuuuuuuu doing?
Me: Hi, babe! I’m working.
Me: Because I have to. Did you have fun at school today?
Me: Did you learn anything?
Me: No? Why not?
Aowyn: I don’t know.
Me: Well, I tell you what. You come work for me and I’ll go to school for you. Maybe I’ll learn something.
Aowyn: Ummm, do you get recess?
Aowyn: No, I don’t want to switch then.
Me: But you get to be in charge if you switch me.
Aowyn: If you’re in charge, why can’t you make there be recess?
Me: Well, sweetie, it doesn’t work that way.
Aowyn: Well, I’m in charge now and I say it’s recess all day where you work!
Me: Thanks! My staff already likes you better than me! So, since you’re in charge, does that mean you’re going to come work for me now?
Me: Oh. So, I’m still working here and you’re still going to school, right?
Aowyn: Yes, but I’m still not going to learn anything.
