The little neighbor girl occasionally visits my house, and today was one of those occasions. She was told to make me work hard, and followed this request as follows:
Corie: "Tacie, you have to work hard, okay?"
Me: "Okay, Corie. I'll work hard."
Corie: "I always try to work hard."
Me: "That's really good Corie."
Corie: "When my brothers are in the room. Well, at least in my mind."
I was biting my tongue to keep from laughing at her absolutely serious remark. She's the type that gets offended at these types of things, but, hey! You gotta love it!
