DH: (out of the blue) Your mother is a pseudo-intellectual.
DS: What's a pseudo-intellectual?
Me: Someone who thinks they are intelligent, but they're really not.
DS: Why is she a pseudo-intellectual?
DH: Because she and her friends like to blog about theodicies (pronounces it wrong) and other strange things.
DS: What are theodicies?
Me: A theodicy is a theory of why God allows pain and suffering in the world.
DS: Why don't they stop blogging about it and just go do something about the pain and suffering in the world?
