A recent dinner conversation between my oldest daughter, who has begun the process of narrowing down colleges where she wants her first round of SAT scores sent, and me...
Me: "So, out of the handful of colleges you are sending scores sent to, which one has the best dorm rooms?"
Daughter: "I don't know. I didn't really look at that."
Me: (feeling slightly disappointed) "I thought maybe you had checked that part out online already. Obviously I don't think that should be your criteria for choosing, of course."
Daughter: "Oh, of course not. That would be really stupid and completely shallow."
Me: "So what sort of criteria did you use to decide where to send your scores?"
Daughter: "I picked the ones with the best-dressed students on their brochures and website. But I also factor in how I would look in their school colors."
Well played, my snarky little fashionista!
