Me, to 7-year-old daughter (a.k.a. Drama Queen): Why aren’t you helping your sister fold the clothes?
7-year-old daughter: She told me that she didn’t want my help. . . (dramatic pause) and I am SIMPLY DEVASTATED! (Imagine how Anne of Green Gables would say this, and you’ll get the picture.)
Me: Oh, I’m sure. (spoken with no small amount of sarcasm)
7-year-old daughter: What does devastated mean?
