now having second thoughts about whether her bilingual son should
instead try for a Spanish-immersion school:
me: "so are you gonna go for it?"
her: "maybe we'll just stick with what we have. it was our first
choice, after all."
me: "but sometimes you think you want something and then when you get
it you realize you didn't really want it as much as you thought you
did. I've definitely had that experience before. like, you know,
her, without missing a beat: "oh yeah. live that one every day. you
wake up, and it's like, 'you again?'"
