"I really don't want to go to school tomorrow mom...... My BEST FRIEND Grace moved and she is gone!"
Me: "oh really? I am so sorry sweetie" (in my head going through the names of the dozens of her friends that I actually know and trying to understand how I don't know the name of her BEST friend Grace!)
"Yeah. She moved to another COUNTRY!"
Me: "Oh really! That is so exciting. Where did she move to?"
"I cant remember the name. Something with a field.... Bakersfield!!
"Mom. I am serious"
Me: "I know baby. Me too. That is very sad but think of all you other friends. Good Night."
