A Conversation

Miss FLG minor is playing with an iPhone.

Mrs. FLG:  It's a nice day today.  We should go outside.

FLG:  What is that smell?

Mrs. FLG:  I think it's the girl.

FLG:  Yep, it's her.  Jesus, you have a stinky butt.

Mrs. FLG:  Whose turn is it?

FLG:  I'm not sure.  I think mine.

Siri:  I could not find 'your stinky butt.'  Would you like me to search the internet for 'your stinky butt?'

FLG:  Good God, no!
