[We were sitting on the edge of a nice fountain in Disneyland and Brianna noticed lots of pennies in the water.]

Brianna: "Why are there so many pennies in the water?"
Laura: "People throw them in."
Brianna: "What happens when you throw in a penny?"
Laura: "Nothing. You lose a penny."

[Later, after a long hot day of walking around Disneyland, we had a short rest and bathroom break.]

Laura: "Well, that felt good. I could go for another ... 10 minutes."

The Talk

[The radio news on NPR was talking about the rate of condom use among teenagers and ended with a suggestion that parents talk to their kids about sex.]

Laura: "Would you like me to talk to you about sex, Dear?"
Jack (thinking this could be interesting): "Yeah, talk to me about sex."
Laura: "Don't do it."

The weather in Seattle

Laura: The weather in Seattle is either "dark and rainy", or .... not.

Hiding the Fritos

[Laura bought some groceries earlier in the day.]

Jack: So, did you buy some more Fritos?
Laura: I can't tell you that.
Jack: Oh, goody! Thanks, Dear.
Laura: I should hide them. Maybe in the raisin container...
Jack: You're the one who doesn't like raisins.
Laura: Yes, but you'd never think to look there for chips.
Jack: Now I do.
Laura: Dang it!
