The naughty list

How bad do you have to be?

Recently, while driving in the car with my 8-year-old daughter, Ella, we had the following conversation.

Ella: “Mom, I’m worried that I’m on the naughty list. Do you know anyone on the naughty list?’’

Me: “Nope. Also, I think you have to be really, really bad to be on the naughty list.’’

Ella, after a few seconds: “How bad? Like Whitey Bulger bad?’’
