The jig is up.
Overheard at the kitchen table:
Sarah: "Benny, I was so proud of you for (insert whatever it is she was proud of him for) yesterday."
Ben, deciding he's finally had enough: "Mom, are you ever not proud of us?!? You're always proud of us for everything."
(insert silence and waiting stares from Ben and Maggie,,,Dad sipping soup and hiding smirk, waiting to hear what crafty prose Mom would try to lessen the sting of defeat)
Sarah: "Well.....I mean...err.....no, But....umm...I was proud of you for this."
