Last Wednesday I was in line at Target, behind a man and his daughter. I'd guess she was about 11 or so.
girl: Dad - look how pretty those flowers are. You should get them for mom.
Dad: Yep, they're nice.
girl: Dad, tomorrow is Valentines Day. You need to get something for mom.
Dad: I already got something.
girl: Really? What?
Dad: Umm, I got her some other stuff.
girl: What other stuff?
Dad: I just already got her something, OK?
girl : Well, is it something that she's just going to end up never using and then giving to Goodwill?
* long pause*
Dad: The flowers ARE pretty, aren't they?
Yeah. That's what I thought, too.
