OK, we've known for a while that my son is blessed with academic abilities, but our conversation this afternoon proved to me that he's learning some other, more practical, "smarts" that will serve him well as he starts interacting more with the other "planet"

Me: I'm sorry for being such a pill today.
D: You weren't a pill.
Me: What was I then?
D: I'm going to have to be careful about this.
(Long pause) You were an agitated female!
