A Mirrored Room

Yours truly, yesterday afternoon. I will shortly pick up Madeleine from swim team and then we to wish the birthday boy his happy number nine.

 I drive Madeleine, JJ and Oliver home from swimming.  Me to JJ and Oliver: "What are you studying in Year Five?"
Oliver: "The Romans."
Me: "Tell me one thing you have learned about the Romans?"
JJ: "They are boring."

I ask the back seat if they know how to find the area of a circle?
Madeleine: "Excuse me, Dad. They really aren't enjoying this conversation."

Me: "Eitan, say one thing about being nine?"
Eitan (some consideration): "I don't really feel any different."
