Young Lady, trying to pack for a sleep over: Mom, have you seen my hat?
Me: I didn't wear your hat. Where did YOU put it?
Me: (Exasperated and in a voice that will let everybody know that I am making an Announcement): I AM DONE WITH KEEPING TRACK OF EVERYBODY'S STUFF!!!
....... announcement is met with silence....
A few minutes later....
Me: (Shouting, but not in an angry voice): YOUNG LADY!?
Young Lady: ( in that tone of voice that only soon to be 13 year olds can achieve): What!
Me: Come here and give me a hug. I have to leave and I won't see you until tomorrow night.
Young Lady: Oh. I thought you found my hat.
