Mom: Kaleb, will you clear the table, please?
Mom: Because I asked you to...
Mom(mumbling to herself as she walks from the dining room to the livingroom): What a novel idea. Doing something just because mommy asks you to...
Leah (having followed mom from the dining room to the livingroom): You mean evil, right?
Leah: Evil. You mean it's an evil idea.
Mom: No, I said novel. Like new, refreshing, innovative. (Okay, so I thought the last two).
Leah: Sounds evil to me.
