Nik walks into Anjali’s bedroom as she is getting into her pajamas.  I ask him to turn off the light in his room and he says, “Just a minute, mom.”

Me: “Okaaaay…?”

He turns to Anjali with a knowing look on his face and then says, “Mom, I want to tell you something.”

Me: “Okaaaay…?”

Nik: “Anjali?  At school today, did you say that A______ was handsome?”

Me: !!!!!!!!

Anjali, with a tiny smile on her face: :Yeah?  Yes I did.”

Nik: “I remember you said that.”

Me: “Huh!”

Nik: “I’m going to turn the light off now, mom.”

Me: “Okay!”
