Last night Ben said he was playing with his invisible friend. When Sara asked what his friend’s name was, Ben said, “Pathetic.”
Tonight at dinner neither Sara nor I would play “the quiet game” with Ben, so he said he would just have to play it with his invisible friend. “What is your friend’s name this time, Ben?” Sara asked.
Ben answered, “Tonight his name is Stupid.”
Sounds to me like Ben is running with the wrong crowd.
