Amanda was trying to get out of doing her afternoon schoolwork today. I was distracted and only half paying attention to our own conversation until the last couple of sentences.
Amanda - What's the point of literature?
Me - To expand your mind.
Amanda - My mind is already so big it's about to pop out of my head. It's the size of a peanut!
If this is your idea of a convincing argument for getting out of doing your schoolwork my dear, you are going to have to think again. It's not working.
Literature is really her favorite subject, maybe that's why she used such an unconvincing argument.
