She Was Going To Go With “Flirt,” But I Liked Mine Better

I don’t know if you noticed, son, but the other day when your mother brought you closer to that group of girls who were making a fuss over you, and you started pretending to be shy to encourage them to make an even bigger fuss over you, your mother playfully chided you by saying, “It looks like I’m going to have to teach you a new word.”

I hope you understand that with an opening like that, I just had to say it.

“Disingenuous?” I ventured.
