Overheard while standing in line at the BX:
[behind our esteemed Wabbit is a mother with an overloaded shopping cart, and a boy, about 7 years old]

Boy: (not whining, asking nicely) Can I have a candy bar?
Mom: (slightly incredulous) I’m already spending four hundred and fifty dollars!
Boy: (not missing a beat) Then what’s fifty cents more?
Mom: (pauses for several seconds) Yeah. Okay. (laughs lightly) Sure, go ahead.

I love a kid that can think on his feet.
