I've been spending more time than I'd like in hardware/home improvement stores, and my favorite "kids say the darnedest things" moment is floating on the surface of my mind.
My friend's son, for some reason, could not remember my name. So, he'd be in the midst of telling me a story and run over to his mom to stage whisper, "Um, what's her name again?" This cracked me up because (1) it's not exactly necessary to call someone by name repeatedly in a story, but it is a child's way of making sure that you are paying attention, (2) he could have asked me. I guess he decided to come up with a memory device for himself because the next time he told me a story he called me (ready for it?): Home Deepa.
Yup, especially from a 5-year old that is friggin' brilliant. I laughed so hard that he kept calling me that. AND it's original!! So few jokes/plays on names are original by the time you're out of high school. I was really impressed.
A few days later, I was interviewing gyms, and the sales rep said to me, "Oh, like Office Depot?" I gave him quite the withering look and told him that a 5 year old had made the same joke. FIVE.
Poor thing, his timing was off - if he'd said it a week earlier, I would have been amused.
