Kat's eyes narrowed to tiny slits, a sure sign of her aggression. "He deserves to choke. He didn't keep little frosty in his pants this summer." the words snapped like a whip.
"He did." Cole snapped back with unwavering confidence.

"What are we five?" Cole said.
"Six.”

Lewis Carroll
“Let’s consider your age to begin with — how old are you?’

‘I’m seven and a half exactly.’

‘You needn’t say “exactually,”’ the Queen remarked: ‘I can believe it without that. Now I’ll give you something to believe. I’m just one hundred and one, five months and a day.’

‘I can’t believe that!’ said Alice.

‘Can’t you?’ the Queen said in a pitying tone. ‘Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.’

Alice laughed. ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said: ‘one can’t believe impossible things.’

‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

“Pops: Plans for the future?
Justin: Not sure yet.
Pops: Well, why not? You don't got much longer in school, boy. Now's the time to figure things out, not later. Didn't anyone ever tel you that you can't spell later without the word late?
Justin: I promise you, I'm doing my best to figure things out.
Pops: "Doing my best" is a phrase failures use. Why don't you buy a man card and finish figuring?
Me: Pops! That's so rude. Justin, I'm so sorry.
Pops: What? How is a valid question rude? But all right, fine, I'll move on since baby boy can't take the heat. How about you finish this sentence for me, Jason? When a girl says no, she means...
Justin, looking desperately at me: No?
Nana: Are you not sure?
Justin, shifting uncomfortably: I'm sure. No means no.
Nana: Well, look at you. You got no right. Now here's another, even tougher sentence for you to finish. Premarital sex is...
Me: Nana! I'm so sorry, Justin.
Nana: Unlike Pops, I'm not moving on, Justin?
Pops: His name is Jason.
Justin: Uh...uh...
Pops: While you think about that, why don't you tell me how you feel about drinking and driving?
Justin: I'm totatlly against it, I swear!
Nana: Methinks he protests too much.”

Of course it must," Humpty Dumpty said with a short laugh; "my name means the shape I am - and a good handsome shape it is, too. With a name like yours, you might be any shape, almost.”
