Dan and I are in the kitchen talking. I’m telling him that I found out I was last in my age group in the overall Highmark Quad standings. Lauren is sitting at the table where she’s supposed to be working on her math homework.
Me: Yeah, so I’m 7 out of 7. Sad, right?
Dan: No. You finished it. You did all the events.
Lauren (butting in): Never try, never fail — those are the words I live by.
Me (laughing): Where do you get this stuff?
Lauren: I made it up.
Me: You didn’t hear it in a movie or something? Cause you sure didn’t get that bad attitude from me.
Kelly (yelling from the living room): It’s from “Robots.”
Lauren: OK, fine, so it’s not original. But “Robots”stole it from me; I said it first.
