Busted

Actual conversation with The Girl last Friday:

TG: What did you do at work today, Daddy?

DD: It was pretty busy. I had to talk to a lot of people.

TG: But what did you do?

DD: That's what I did. I had to meet with a bunch of different people.

TG: Meetings?

DD: Yeah, that's when people get together to discuss things.

TG: But didn't you do any work?

(pause)

DD: Well, I did use the computer some…

TG: Yeah, that's how people work.
