Nick rarely comes home after he gets off the bus in the afternoon, he mostly prefers to darken the door of some neighborhood friend than come home and face the inevitability of homework and chores. He's good at getting out of stuff, but he KNOWS that he MUST be home by 5:00 because that is the drop dead time to start homework. Or Else!
Today, Nick decided to go play at his friend Lauren's house. He likes Lauren alot and they have a good time together...despite the fact that she is a girl.
When Gus came in from school today, he inquired:
Gus: Mom, where's Nick?
Me: He's at Lauren's house.
Gus: (he contorts his face in a disdainful manner) Why does he like to go to her house? She's a GIRL!
Me: I'm not sure, Gus.
Gus: (smiling an evil smile) Mayyyyyybeeeee...he likes playing with Bar-Beeees
Me: Gus, you are a piece of work.
