This afternoon's conversation:
J: Mom, are you going hangliding?
Me: No, why?
J: Because there's a hangliding website up on your computer.
Me: Oh that. That's just research.
J: So who's going hangliding?
Me: Nobody. It's for the book.
J: Oh. Can I go hangliding?
Me: No. Only the fictional people in my life can go hangliding.
J: Too bad. It looks fun.
Me: Get off my computer. Please.
On this date: In 1994, Nelson Mandela is inaugurated.
