Me: Hey, Margie! Elliott! Guess who I love!
Me: Oh. Well. Um. Yes! Of course. But I was going to say the Doctor.*
Me: But you know I’d probably choose you over him.
Margie: Oh, mom! I love you!**
Me: Hey. I just said probably. Don’t get too excited yet.
Margie: “Probably” is pretty much “yes.”
*What? I’m a loving mom in all other scenarios.
**See? She understands what a complement that was.
