“Katie has started copying Fatima’s accent.”
“Oh my goodness, that is not a very good idea. Not at all.”
“How can Katie be copying Fatima’s accent? What is Fatima’s accent anyway?”
“I don’t know. I’m not that smart. If I were any smarter, I wouldn’t be working in construction.”
“Oh, don’t say that! It’s so stupid when people say that they aren’t smart. It really doesn’t matter.”
“Oh of course I know that I’m smart. I’m VERY smart.”
And then there was only laughter.
