Here are a few conversations that I either had with someone else, or overheard:

1. Me: "I cannot believe the school allows girls to wear shorts that short! Look at the girl across the street. Her's are mid-thigh, and I think that's fine. But this girl's are clear up to her bottom!"
12 year old son: "Duh Mom, that's why they call them 'booty shorts'." 12 year old said that? :-O

2. Woman looking at newborn: "I miss raising my kids. I stayed home with my kids instead of working. We were very poor, but I wanted to be able to enjoy the time with them, so I didn't work."

I wanted to congratulate her! :)

3. Older man to woman: "See that woman over there texting? What is the attraction with texting?"
Woman: "Well, I've thought about this. Do you remember getting telegrams? They were short and to the point. Texting is kind of like that."

Except the difference is that people don't telegram and drive. :D

4. Lesbian one introducing herself to child's teacher: "I'm her mother."
Lesbian two introducing herself to child's teacher: "I'm her biological mother."

I always wondered how they introduced themselves. ;)
