Overheard in NY

[Patrol car flashing lights at curb. Small group of high-schoolers corralled against wall]
Police officer: So what happened –what did you see?
Sharp teen: No hablo inglés.
Officer, in perfect Spanish: Entonces, que pasó? Qué viste?
Smart teen: No hablo español!

Yesterday, I overheard the following on the subway here in Toronto:

babysitter to toddler in stroller: We’re going home now.

toddler: But I don’t want to go home!

babysitter: Oh, but we need to go home, mommy will be there

toddler after thinking a bit: I don’t like mommy.
