A Conversation at 2:00 am

This morning I was in my room getting dressed to get my delightful 4 and a half hours of sleep when my mom awoke and drifted into the room.

Mom: "What are you doing not in bed?"
Miranda: "... Getting into bed?"
Mom: "This late? Thats too much homework."
Miranda: "Layla and stuff sometimes pull all nighters. This isn't that bad."
Mom: "It is that bad."
Miranda: "Mom, it is the sophomore research paper."
Mom: "You got it all done?"
Miranda: Well, only halfway through the rough draft, and I haven't started on my other homework yet, but I finished the oral presentation. "I got it all done."
