Enough about Me, Can we Talk about Me Now?: The Nuances of Language

So yesterday after school I asked Ten what everyone thought about her race the other day.

Her response: No one asked.

At first my reaction was again this notion of how self-centered kids are.

But then I realized that she meant exactly what she said and had no concerns whatsoever about it. What she meant (in adult speak) was that it was really a non-issue. She didn't think to tell people, and people didn't, subsequently, respond.
