Me: The teacher tells me you had a rough time at lunch today.
Z: Yeah. I lost one of my friends. It made me really sad.
Me: Oh no! What happened?
Z: I just don’t have any idea. Nathan came up to me and told me that Marco didn’t want to be my friend anymore.
Me: That wasn’t very nice.
Z: No, no, it’s okay. I wasn’t mad at Nathan. He was just telling me about it.
Me: Well, maybe everything will be better on Monday. People have short memories, you know.
Z: It’s already all better.
Me: Oh yeah?
Z: At recess one of my other friends hypnotized Marco and told him to be my friend again and now he is.
Me: Oh. Well, okay then.
Z: Also, I swallowed my tooth while I was eating.
Editor’s Note:I bet you didn’t see either of those plot twists coming, did you?
