After school, one of the teachers was looking for her lost earring. She showed the other one to me. It was a small hoop.
A few minutes later, Amanda walked by my office ...
Me: Amanda, have you seen a hoop earring around here?
Amanda: What does that mean?
Me: What do you think it means? While you've been walking around, HAVE YOU SEEN A HOOP EARRING?
That same afternoon, we walked out to the parking lot ...
Megan: Mom, you parked in a handicap spot.
Me: It used to be a handicap spot.
Amanda: What do you mean?
Me: Well ... it used to be a handicap parking spot, and now it's not. (?!)
Megan has a little pink pillow she likes to lay on when she's watching TV ...
Amanda: Why is Megan's pillow out here (on the floor in front of the TV)?
Me: Uh, because she left it there?
