(I am in line to buy a hot chocolate in the coffee shop section of a bookstore. I notice two women in line behind me, wondering out loud if they have hot chocolate.)
Woman #1: “Do you think they have hot cocoa? I really want hot cocoa.”
Me: “They do, actually. I’m getting some myself! They have the BEST hot chocolate.”
Woman #2: “Oh, that’s great! I wanted to get some since I just read that hot cocoa is really healthy for you!”
Woman #2: “Yeah! They said that it is SO healthy for you, and that you should drink some every day!” *she notices the pastry display* “Oh! I think I’ll get a cupcake, too! Those are SUPER healthy!”

Character On Ride: “Would you like to ride with us again?”
Panicking Customer: “F***, NO!”
