She raises an eyebrow. "And how did you phrase that?"

"I dunno."

Zaneta raises an eyebrow.

He just looks at her blankly. "What?"

"You're a Miracle who was probably running on more than one brain at the time. If you actually forgot what you said, that would be cause for concern."

"I don't get smarter with more clones, I just get their memories when they're gone," he says stubbornly. "And it was days ago!"

Permalink

"If something I said got scorpions dropped on me like Moses' worst plague, I'd remember it." 

Permalink

"...what? It's not my fault!"

Permalink

"I just want to understand what happened. It isn't very in character for Maurice."

Permalink

"Well then ask him."

Permalink

"I have. He said you called Carol's power boring and stupid."

Permalink

"Oh. Yeah maybe I did."

Permalink

"Was that the best way you could have put that?"

Permalink

"It is boring and stupid."

Permalink

"I think most people would disagree with that. And even if they didn't, does that seem like a very nice thing to say?"

Permalink

Shrug. "Dropping scorpions on me isn't nice. It's much less nice."

Permalink

"I'm not saying it isn't. That wasn't justified at all. But you might be able to avoid this sort of thing more if you tried... put it this way, would you like someone calling your power boring?"

Permalink

"They'd be wrong."

Permalink

"I think so, too, but that's a very subjective thing."

Permalink

"Whatever it's just a power."

Permalink

"It's still rude to call people boring. Or stupid."

Permalink

"I didn't call her boring. I think."

Permalink

"That can be hard to tell."

Permalink

He folds his arms. "Well what about everyone else then?"

Permalink

"Don't worry, they'd have been weeping by the time I raised my eyebrow."
