Early Warning Signs

Checking reading comprehension…
Me: “In this story, Enid compares herself to a jade plant that has been neglected. How might the jade plant relate to the way Enid is feeling?”
Kid: “Well, like, the plant hasn’t been watered, so it’s dying. And Enid feels lonely and sad, which means she is slowly dying inside.”
Me: “Beautiful answer.”
Then I handed her some Prozac and a shot of whiskey.
