Nicholas scored surprisingly high on a test he took this week, and he was feeling pretty good about it.
Nick: Mom. I got all my smart genes from dad.
Me: (appalled, and showing it) Nick, you don't think you got any intelligence genes from your mom?
Nick: I did (putting his arm around me) , but I mostly got my good looks and singing talent from you.
Me: Nice recovery Nick. You'll make a good politician.
