(My nine-year-old son and I have just had an incredible exchange with a very nice cashier, who spent the time and energy to let my son review the process of buying something with his own money, and counting change.)

Cashier: “You should stay in school and go to college.”

Son: “I don’t know…”

Me: “He told me he doesn’t want to move away from home.”

Cashier: “When I was growing up in the Caribbean, I couldn’t wait to move out of my mother’s house. Now I wish—”

Son: “Wait, you are from the Caribbean? Like the Pirates of the Caribbean? Are you a pirate?”

Cashier: “No, I’m not, but I went to college and—”

Son: “And you learned to be a pirate?”

Cashier: “No, but the movie was filmed in my country.”

Son: “Did you meet any pirates?”
