The scene: In the car, where else? Secondo has been complaining about how mean mommy is making him wear rainboots, because it is pouring rain outside.
Me: "You know, when *I* was three years old, my mommy MADE me wear boots, too."
Secondo: "You were THREE?"
Secondo: "Just like ME?"
Me: "Well, actually, I WAS just like you. Which is why mommy's mommy and daddy think YOU are so funny."
