Conversations with a 10 yr old, 2

Her: Can I tell you about the book I've been reading, Esemeralda and the Enchanted Pond?

Me: (Debating whether I want to be the audience for an hour-long monologue.) Umm...

Her: I'll sum it up...

Me: Didn't you tell me about that one yesterday?

Her: I wanted to add more detail.

Me: That wouldn't be summing up, then, would it?

Her: Please...

Me: (Inwardly sighing.) Okay.
