Elizabeth: "I'm going to play soccer, and my mom and dad are the coaches, in charge, for real. My dad is the assistant coach, and my mom is going to be the real leader!"
E's buddy: "Why is your mom going to be the leader?"
Elizabeth: "Just because. She chose to."
(We bought a used book at the Milwaukie Daze parade, where the library was having a sale. Later that day....)
Me: "Want to read this book we got today?"
Me: "Oh... did you want this book?"
Elizabeth: "No. I just wanted you to be happy that we got a book."
