An actual conversation, overheard in the Wagner household one evening this week.

Dear Mom,

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.
