Driving Maggie to a birthday party yesterday we were talking about the games she plays at school. She mentioned some of the older boys would pretend to play football. I explained that they'd get to play for real in high school. She liked that because "I love football, and I really love the Dallas Cowboys!" All I know about that is she didn't pick it up in our house because there's never been any football stuff there.
So I told my California-born daughter "You've been assimilated!"
