Jack (at soccer practice pointing to another player on his pee-wee soccer team): "He hit me!"
My friend: "He did?! Why would he do that?"
Jack: "I don't know, but it hurt!"
My friend (calling the other boy over): "Why did you hit Jack?"
Other boy: "Because he hit me first!"
My friend (to Jack): "Did you hit him first?"
Jack: "Yes, but that's not the part I'm tattling about - I'm tattling about him hitting me after that!"
