Overheard: You Look Like a Girl

When my son was 9 years old, he had long hair. I overheard him talking to another kid.

KID: Your long hair is STUPID. It makes you look like a GIRL.

MY SON: Yeah, I know. It’s a great disguise.

[long pause]

KID: Oh… oh. You’re right.

(I had a little victory dance in the corner while no one was looking.)
