me: Jack, how come in Tae Kwon Do class you keep looking back at the other kids? You know you always get in trouble for turning around…
Jack: That’s because I’m looking at Eric and trying to copy what he’s doing.
me: But you’re a very good student and you don’t need to copy anyone.
Jack: (gives me an actual pity look) Mommmm, I try to copy everything he does, because…and I really do this almost every day of my life, because then if I do exactly what he does I can read his thoughts and then I can have mind control over him.
Jack: With mind control, you have everything.
