Roxanne joined Abby and I at the dinner table tonight as we were finishing up our meal. "Tell daddy what question of the day was at school," Abby asked. "What do you like to hug," Roxanne told us. "What? That's not what you told me!" Abby responded.
Well, it turns out that at four years, ten months, Roxanne has discovered the joys of deception through sincerity. Roxanne, often deadpan and always dead serious seeming, convinced my wife that the "question of the day" at nursery school was "what is your favorite meat" and that, furthermore, all the kids answered "lamb chops." This should have raised flags, because 1) that is a strange thing to ask a bunch of 4 & 5 year olds, 2) most kids that age don't like lamb chops and 3) Roxanne loves lamb chops, obsessively so, and works them into any conversation imaginable. But no, Abby bought this story.
For your information, Roxanne's answer to the real question was her plush USA (aka Hugg America). My answers are "Roxanne and Stella" for hugging and "chicken" for the meat.
