P: Mom do you have a plain earring?
P: A plain earring?
M: No, why?
P: I want to wear an earring to school today
M: WHAT?! Why?
P: I want to wear an earring to school today so I look like a home-y
M: WHAT?! What is a home-y? And anyway 6 year old boys don’t wear earrings!
M: You can tell me I won’t get mad
P: Just a home-y
M: Are there other home-ys in your class at school?
P: No, not really
M: Ok, you can be a home-y for Halloween but not a regular day at school – and where did you hear about home-ys?
P: I just figured it out…
M: Well, it is time to get on the bus
P: I know a 6 year old girl that wears earrings to school
M: That’s different, enough now!
