Our friends Madison and Caroline were here playing with my little people yesterday. As the three oldest kids were enjoying a game of fairy tale adventure, I overheard the following snippet of dialogue:

Madison: Pretend I'm dead.

Matthew: Pretend I'm dead too.

Meg: "Oh... no! He's dead!" Pretend I have a magic potion that can bring you back to life.

Madison: Pretend it doesn't work on me.

Matthew: Pretend it doesn't work on me either.

Meg: No, it has to work on everyone!


Madison: Pretend you spilled it all out.

(longer pause)

Meg: Okay. I'm dead too.
