Crucial conversations...

It's so fun listening to the conversations kids have with their friends.
So very entertaining to say the least.
Bear says to his friend:
"So what did you get for Christmas?"
His friend told him, but Bear couldn't hear.
Instead of asking "what?" Bear says,
"Well I didn't hear what you said, but I bet it is something really cool."

Bear and his cousin, Aiden, are having a discussion.
Aiden mentions that he recently watched "Phantom."
Bear has no idea what that is.
Aiden explains that "the Phantoms face is like messed up like Darth Vaders."
(The Phantom of the Opera)
Aiden then goes on to pull a roll of medical tape out of his pocket which he says he snuck from Grandma's house.  They use this tape to make Phantom masks.
Oh how I wish I could have gotten a picture, 
but alas I was driving on the freeway with no stop light in sight.

Kids and their friends fight over silly things.
Can make a game out of just about anything.
And probably 99% of the time that game will end up with someone hurt.
It's worth it though just to hear the funny things they say,
and to witness how fast they get over it.
At least most of the time.
