A seventh grade conversation after I had used the desire to cheat as an example of internal conflict.
Argumentative Boy: "But what if you were a bad cheater. That would be external."
Me: "Yes, if you were caught, it would definitely be an external conflict."
Another boy (off-handedly): "That would be a sin."
Lovely, young girl (world-wearily): "Does anyone still sin these days?"
I would have loved to continue that conversation... but we were pressed for time and it wasn't on the sub plans!
