Kids these days...

Our new (well, she's been here for almost 2 years, but I think this is the first time we've mentioned her) kids' librarian Matilda sent me this exchange the other day:

Boy: Are you Asian?

Me: Yes.

Boy: I could tell.

Me: How?

Boy: Your eyes.

Me: My eyes? Not my hair? Or my fingernails? Or my ears?

Boy: Your eyes. Because we're Asian too, see.
(Solemnly lifts up bangs to show me his eyes.)
We desperately really need the book "Strega Nona." I noticed that it's supposed to be available at this library, but it's not on the shelf. I assume someone didn't put it back. Kids these days.
(Rolls eyes.)

Me: old are you?

Boy: 7.
