Imogen: I think my teacher needs better challenge words on spelling tests.

Me: Why's that?

Imogen: Because her challenge words aren't challenging.  She asks us to spell snail or spider. Those are easy. A challenging word would be something like stupendous or idiosyncratic.

Me:  Yup, sounds about right to me.

Imogen: I know why we call MamaJen 'Jen' for her nickname.

Me: Oh yeah, why is that?

Imogen: Because she likes donuts so much.

Imogen: I might be a flower girl again one day.

Me: Oh yeah?

Imogen: Yes. Auntie Jenny gets married a lot and I think Courtney can't be her flower girl again because she's very old, like 19, so it will have to be me. I wonder if Brad will be sad? Oh well; being a flower girl is important so he'll understand. Maybe he can be my assistant.

Me:  Hmmm. I guess we'll have to see.

Imogen: When I feel so sick, all I have energy for is watching movies and writing poetry.

Imogen: It's actually a very special day for me because I'm Kisses' (the cat's) mother. Kisses is working hard to make today special for me.

Imogen: Did you know that I'm Italian?

Me: Oh, is that because MamaJen is part Italian?

Imogen: MamaJen is part Italian?!?  No, I am Italian because I can say presto and crescendo and adagio in Irish.

Me: In Irish?

Imogen: Yes! So I'm Italian.
