Conversation with Alex, the exchange student coming to live with us. We are in the paperwork process, and have to have background checks. We were talking about how we might be closet murderers or criminals, and how would he know?

Violet: But what if we're con men?
Alex (puzzled): "Con" men? What's that?
Violet: People who pretend to be good, but end up taking your money.
Alex: Oh! You mean an asshole?

You should keep him and never let him go back. As a matter of fact, naturalize him and run him for office, PLEASE!

It's short for 'confidence trickster', isn't it?

I could look it up, but I'd prefer Alex's definition, anyway.
