Natalie: "Mom, today I did something different."
Me: "Really, what?"
Natalie: "I decided to do an experiment. I wanted to see what it was like to sit at a boys' table."
Me: "How'd that go?"
Natalie: Mom! They are so different...and funny and creative. And...don't forget about the insults! There are lots of those. And, they like to throw food and try to catch it in their mouth and sometimes they get food on their face! Girls are nice, but boys are just...different. I think I'm going to do that again tomorrow."
