Nico: Mousy, you there????
Nico: Yes, that's your new nickname.
Me: You know that's an insult in English, right?
Nico: It is?? What does it mean?
Me: It means dull, drab. You think I'm dull, drab??
Nico: LOL!!! No
Nico: Is cuter when I say it
(Cell phone rings)
Back on IM:
Me: Yes, it's cute when you say it
Me: But I can say "jackass" really cute too and it's still an insult
Nico: No you can't. It's XXXX's nickname and I don't want to take that away from him. It's only fitting.
Me: You so funny today, how come?
Nico: I ate a clown for breakfast.
