the girl (showing me a LEGO structure): This is the entry to my house.
me (noticing interesting pieces): Why is there dude in a suit and a chain across the hall?
the girl: He’s the butler. [She lifts a police-looking figure] And this one is my security guard. No one gets past the chain without their approval.
me: What if I came over? Would I make it past security?
the girl: Maybe… If I’m not busy.
I like him. He’s cute. I’ll take a life-size one.
the boy (asking me seriously): Remember in ‘The Force Awakens’ when […insert tiny details and precise dialogue I would never remember even after seeing that movie 6 times…]?
me (amazed): No. How on earth do you remember specific details like that?!?
the boy (deadpan): I have a very particular set of skills.
