Stephanie: Girl Child? GIRLLLLLLL CHILLLLLLLLD? Where are you?
Girl Child, sticking her head out of the closet: Here I am!
Stephanie, startled: What are you doing?
Girl Child: Reading!
Stephanie: In your closet?
Girl Child: Yes!
Stephanie: Girl Child. There is no light in your closet. It's not a walk-in closet. There is not even room for you to sit down in there. Why on earth would you read in your closet?
Girl Child, gleefully: I have no idea!
Stephanie: Well. Okay then.
Jason, from the hall: Jesus Christ Stephanie, were you as weird as that when you were a kid?
Stephanie, reflecting: Maybe.
