Overheard

At the Daily Grind:

(Scruffy, slightly unkempt man) "Hi!"
"Hi! How are you?", (pretty girl, sitting with her friends)
"Weren't you on that Girls Gone Wild in Aruba?"
Stunned silence, followed by hysterical laughter and "NO!"

Outside my house:

"Red light!"
"Green light!"
"Red light!"
"Green light! Dad, do you think that...."
"RED LIGHT! You have to STOP!"

While taking my friends' daughters to the park with my father and husband:

"You're not supposed to pick other people's flowers!" (addressing my father)

"Shoot is a bad word!" (to my husband)

"NO!"

"Noooo!"

"NoooOOoo!"

"WaaaauuaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaa!" (all towards me)

Later on in the evening:

"Appa?" (gesturing at grapes)

"Appol?" (pointing towards banannas)

"AAAPPLE!!" (reaching for a large strawberry)
