On the rare (or repeat) occasion that I get caught texting/emailing instead of doing what I said I would be doing for Arden, one might overhear a conversation like this:
Arden wanders over to check on my progress…
Me: (quick, deflect!) Arden, whatcha doing so quietly in your room?
Me: (suspicion radar beeping) C’mon, what are you doing? I’m just curious.
Arden: You don’t need to know, you should be making my lunch.
Round one: Arden
So, Arden eventually says she’s reading A Wrinkle In Time (the graphic novel). She disappears, and then returns to say,
Arden: Alright, I’m actually reading Harry Potter 2. But Roenne is trying to make me read 1 first and I don’t want to. I just want to read number 2!
Arden: 2, World: 0
Just another tale of A Mafia Lord Trapped In a 6 Year Old Girl’s Body.
