Man: “Little girl, don’t even try to sell me any cookies; I am diabetic. Do you know what that means?”

(He stops, and I can see him fighting a grin. He finally breaks and says:)

Man: “Yes. Yes, she does. Two thin mints. Here’s a twenty; keep the change.” *to me* “Mom, here’s my business card; when she gets about 21, I have a job in sales for her!”
