Actual Conversations: The Husband & The Girl, 09/17/11, 8:45 p.m.

Me: Wow, that noise really sounds like the [snow] plow.

Him: What noise? From where?

Me: From outside.

Him: (listening) Yeah. What is that?

Me: I don't know. Our robot overlords?

Her: Robots don't exist.

Him: Yes they do. Robots are real.

Her: Mom, evil robots are real.

Me: Maybe it's fireworks. Maybe they're kind of far away.

Her: (listening) Maybe it's a battle. Battles are real.

Me: Yes, they are.

Her: Maybe people are bombing them, like with soap. Maybe they don't want to wash their hands, so the people that do wash their hands are trying to make them clean. Like that kind of a battle.
