She said that?

So... I was escorting LauraChioma into school today when we passed her friend's mother.  Chi waved "hello" and continued toward the building.  We get a few steps up the walkway when she says
"That's her're my mommy.  Mommy is pretty.  And your clothes are pretty.  I like them.  But those are ugly shoes.  Ugly black shoes.  I don't like your shoes.  Maybe you can buy pretty ones?"
Can a sista get a break here?  

Yes, my shoes resemble those of the woman famous for the line "I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog too!" 

But hey - you try standing up for 7 1/2 hours entertaining pubescent children with ADD, ADHD, apathy, depression, heartbreak, lunacy, and a host of other malfunctions found in today's classroom. 

These witchy black wonders are comfortable!
