Nate told Sparrow the other day that she was the winner in the “losing contest”.
That’s a nice way of putting it….but I suppose that you’ll only be able to get away with that for a little while.
A comment like that works better when it’s directed at a new person.
A three-year old takes something better than an adult will.
A seven-year old might be the only one who could make a comment like that, too.
Adults read between the lines.
Being the winner in the losing contest wouldn’t fly with a grownup.
We keep it under our hat if we win at losing.
We lay low.
