a few exchanges we had last week:
"i want wings.""so you can fly?"
"no, chicken wings."
"i'm eating fruit snacks."
"what? you're waiting for sex?"
[rummaging in closet]
"i need a good luck charm. do you have any?"
"there are no such things as good luck charms. you're the superstitious one in this family."
"oh, nevermind, i found one. [holds up gold horseshoe necklace] it's a horseshoe. it's gotta be good luck."
"it wasn't good luck for christopher reeves, just ask him..."
"isn't he dead?"
