Conversations at the Reference Desk

Me: "Why is your arm in a cast???"

Scrappy Tween Girl: "I punched a wall."
 
Me: "Whyyyyy did you do that?"
 
Scrappy Tween Girl: "Because I was mad."
 
Me: "Well, can you maybe think of a more constructive way to express your anger?"
 
Scrappy Tween Girl: "Yeah. Punching softer things."

Touché, scrappy tween girl. Touché.
