Conversation with my 10-year-old son this morning, while he was supposed to be doing his homework.
Son: Daddy, look at my eyebrows. (making an exaggerated “feminine” movement of his hand over his face with a pencil) I scooped them up like girls do.
Daddy: Do your homework.
Son: But really, Daddy! Look!
Daddy: Those aren’t your eyebrows.
Son: Oh, yeah! They’re my eyelids.
Daddy (wincing): Mama was right. You have some holes in your English.
Son: I’m a Japanese kid, dude!
Daddy: Sure, but they’re not eyebrows. Or eyelids.
Son (cackling): They’re eyelidbrows!
