(I am a customer shopping through DVD sales on Black Friday. A young boy runs up to look as well.)

Boy: “Look, dad! Star Wars!”

(The boy picks up the movie and looks closer. It is Episode 2, with Hayden Christensen and Natalie Portman on the cover.)

Boy: “Wait. This isn’t the real Star Wars. What is this? Hey, dad, why are they pretending to be Star Wars?”

(I am in the fish department of a pet store. A father and son are browsing the wall of fish. They stop at a tank full of orange and black striped fish. The father points some out.)

Father: “Look, son. It’s Nemo!”

(I overhear a mother and young daughter in a store.)

Daughter: “I want to go to [Grocery Store] and get some mechanical pencils!”

Mother: “No. We’re not going there for pencils.”

Daughter: “What? Why not?!”

Mother: “They’re too expensive! I’d have to give them my arm!”

Daughter: “But, you’d still have one left over!”

Bumbling For A Name

(I am ringing up a mother with her young daughter. I politely ask her what she plans to do with yellow and black ribbon, and bumblebee stickers.)

Mother: “Well, I’m going to try and make something for my daughter’s soccer team. They’re ‘The Bumblebees’.”

Me: “Oh, that’s so cute!”

Mother: “Yes, we were all thrilled when the girls changed their team colors from blue to yellow and black this year. They used to be ‘The Blue Balls’!”

(I pause for a moment while this information sinks in, then burst out laughing.)

Mother: “It was bad. They got their blue outfits, and when the coach asked what team name they should have, my daughter looked down at the soccer ball by her feet and said, ‘The Blue Balls’!”

Son: *proudly* “October!”

Front desk: “Do you know what year, hun?”

Son: *thinks* “Every year!”
