Debate Team

Cassie: Here’s a flier about the debate team. Do you want to do that?

Charlie: No.

Cassie: Why? You’d be so good at it. Arguing a point ’til you kill it.

Charlie: I’d kill it every time, Mom. What fun is that? For everyone else, I mean. It wouldn’t be fair.

Cassie: Charlie, you could help your school’s team win the big trophy.

Charlie: Mom, every team wins a trophy….so everyone feels good about themselves. It’s lame. I don’t need to do that. I already know my skills.

Cassie: Guess you killed that debate.

Charlie: My point exactly.
