(I’m visiting my uncle’s house. His 15-year-old daughter is gabbing away on the phone. This apparently happens every evening. She finally finishes up.)

Uncle: “You spend a lot of time on that phone, sweetie. Do you consider it a job or a hobby?”

Cousin: “Neither, Dad. It’s a calling.”

(This happens when I am a know-it-all eight year old.)

Dad: “Hey!”

(He says something I can’t make out.)

Me: “What did you say, Daddy?”

Dad: “Jeez, what are you, deef?”

Me: “It’s pronounced deaf, Daddy.”

Dad: “Oh, really? Then why don’t you go outside and rake some leffs?”

(Many years later, my father can still send my mother into convulsing laughter by telling me to ‘go rake some leffs’ when I’m sassy.)
