My boy, who had just finished his latest novel, sidled up next to me with one of his Christmas gifts, the latest book in the Eragon series, Inheritance.
How many pages are in your book Mom?
Eight hundred and forty-two, I said with a smug grin. How many in YOUR book little boy?
Eight hundred and forty-nine. I have you beat by SEVEN pages...hehe...
It's ok, I don't need my ego anyway.
