One Upmanship

One morning earlier this week, Aubrey and Brynna were settling onto the sofa and the recliner for another day of recuperation and movie watching. This was the conversation:

Aubrey: I like to pretend I'm in the hospital.

Brynna: Yeah!

A: I'm pretending I have a broken wrist.

B: Well, I have to lay here very still in the hospital because I broke both of my legs.

A: Well, I have to lay really still because I broke my wrist AND got sick.

B: Yeah, well I am really sick with chicken pox.

A: I have to stay in the hospital because I have small pox.

At that point I had to leave the room laughing. I think one-upmanship is their super power.
