In Which B13 Pays Mom a Compliment

Awww, I just found the scrap of paper where I wrote this one down....

Back during Schoolhouse Rock, Bantam13 and Blondechick16 went home with some friends on the break between the daytime and the evening show. Later on, the mom told me that while they were at her house, the talk had turned to schools and homeschooling. She had asked B13:

"So if she [Blondechick16] is in public school, how come you are homeschooled?"

He was quick with his reply: "Because I have an amazing mom!"

(She thought I would be touched and encouraged, which I was!)

I told B13 that I heard about what he said and appreciated it. He said, "But did you hear what I said after that?"

He obviously thought that I had missed his best line.

"No, what?"

"I said, 'Yeah, me and my mom, we go waaaay back.' "
