Heard Over Dinner
This is from a dinner conversation with my kids Duncan (16), Cameron (14), and Kelsey (13). We had been discussing the case of a teenage girl known to Kelsey who was found guilty of shoplifting:
Duncan: That's something that girls do a lot more than boys.
Me: You mean shoplifting?
Me: Do you have any evidence to back that up?
Duncan: You never hear about boys shoplifting -- it's always girls.
Cameron: That's because when boys do it, it's called stealing.
