"Well, yes, and I did. Doodie!"

"What is that??"
"A cannoli mask!"

My nephews (8 and 6) talking about a Halloween costume. Obviously, my sister is an interesting person. Indeed.

"If you forget about all the crap, it's still pretty cute."
"Yeah, 'bout as much as a dead cat."

My cousin and my mom talking about a nest of baby birds that was covered in their, well, crap. This cousin's sister, when she was 4 or 5, mentioned how cute a dead cat was lying there on the side of the road. We've never let her forget it. *G*

"I love the smell of funeral parlors."

My mom explaining why she loves a flowery candle scent. Um, I think I'll stick with more lively scents, like watermelon, honeydew, blueberry, peach, and yes, apple. *grin*

"Hey, it went under the bay!"
"Whoa, you visit In Passing??"

AppleMan and a random trucker watching "10.5" at a truck stop in Arkansas. He was talking to me (on the phone) and was totally freaked when the guy recognized the phrase. It was a lurker, unless they want to step forward and admit they met Mr Man. *grin*

"Yeah, why? You want one?"
"I was thinking about it."
"Don't bother. I have some stuff I got from Avon that doesn't work. You can have it."
Me and my mom discussing hair removal. And she wonders how I turned out the way I did. *grin*

"Hey, Mom, what'd you do to your passenger mirror?"
"Who says all accidents have to be me?"
"Uh, the policeman who has to keep coming out to fill out your reports. So, what happened to the mirror?"
"Your dad and I went for a drive on my birthday and I was wearing that sweater you gave me. I had a hot flash so I took it off. While I was doing that, your dad was distracted by my chestal region, and he hit a mailbox that jumped out into the road."
My mom and I discussing the lack of a passenger side mirror on their van. It's sort of sweet to know that my dad still looks at my mom that way, but really, it's squicky.

"Dad, you're just wasting the $20 for safety equipment. I'm not gonna ever wear it anyway."
"Then what I'm really wasting is the $39.95 for the skateboard, 'cause without the equipment, you're not ever gonna ride it."
"Oh, then I'll wear the stuff, I swear!!"

A girl and her father at the local WalMart.

"But it was me."

Two girls in the theater during Secret Window. Amazing that the typical movie experience lately has consisted of either teens talking to friends loudly or some tired bozo snoring. This time, it was both. *sigh*
