But, officer, the HOT LIGHT is on, you see...

(On our way to Krispy Kreme... please note: I was under the speed limit.)

Elizabeth: "You're driving too fast."

Me: "Oh?"

Elizabeth: "Yeah, a policeman is gonna pull you over and give you a ticket."

Me: "OK, I'll slow down... sorry about that."

Elizabeth: "Tell that to the policeman."

Out. Of. Hand

Me: [Doing a weird dance or something] "Oh, sorry.... am I getting out of hand?"

Elizabeth: "Yes."

Me: "I get out of hand a lot, right?"

Elizabeth: "Yes."

Me: "...That's actually my whole life, is getting out of hand and having fun."

Elizabeth: "I don't like it when people get out of hand."

Me: "Why?"

Elizabeth: "Because it means they... have problems."



Me : "What would you like for dessert?"

Elizabeth: "Can I have two Thin Mints?"

Me : "Yes."

Elizabeth: "Can I also have something else?"

Me : "Like what?"

Elizabeth: "Like a coconut fruit popsicle."

Me : "You can either have two cookies or the popsicle."

Elizabeth: "How about one cookie and the popsicle."

Me : "No, you can have half a popsicle and one cookie."

Elizabeth: "Oh, fine, I'll just have the popsicle... can I also have half a cookie?"

Me: "Fine."

Surprises are more better

Elizabeth: "I can probably read these Barbie books because they are level 1 and 2, and I am on level 5."

Me: "Will you read 'em to me?"

Elizabeth: "...No."

Me: "Oh... What if I promise not to say a single word while you are reading them?"

Elizabeth: "...Nope, won't work. I'm going to read to you when you don't expect it, so don't ask me. Surprises are more better, don't you think?"


Kind of

(Watching this cartoon...)

Elizabeth: "One time I got chased by a wave at the beach and it was scary... and kind of awesome."


Uh... thanks 'Roger Rabbit'

(...someone in the movie says 'Son of a bitch')

Me: "Oh, sorry, there's bad words in this movie."

Elizabeth: "Thanks!"

Me: "Huh?"

Elizabeth: "Now I can learn 'em all!"
