G: Mommy, if you entered a beauty contest, you would win, for sure!
Me: Oh, I don't think so!
G: Oh, yes you would! (pause) But maybe you're a little bit too old...
Me: Too old?
G: I think you have to be between 20 and 30 years old.
Me: Actually, there are beauty contests for older women, you know.
G: Well, they wouldn't even let you participate if they saw you.
Me: Why not?!
G: Well, you are just *too* beautiful. They would turn you away at the door. All the other women would be afraid to compete against you.
Me: You know, honey, external beauty is really not the most important thing in life. I think it's more important to be a good person, to be friendly and kind to others...
G: Oh, I know that. I'm just trying to flatter you!
