Not Little

Butch:  *making noises ... because that's what he does*

Molly:  That was some good beatboxin', Daddy!  *has conversation about beatboxing with me and Butch, in which she demonstrates her own beatbox skills*

Charlotte:  *attempts to copy Molly's beatboxing*

Molly:  Charlotte's too little to beatbox. 

Charlotte:  No!  I small!

Molly:  *ignoring her sister, continuing to us*  She's just too little. 

Charlotte:  *increasingly upset with Molly*  I small!

Molly:  *oblivious to the offense her sister has taken at being called "little" and seeming to think she's yelling at her over the critique of her beatbox skills* Charlotte, you're just too little to beatbox.

Charlotte:  *shouting at Molly with daggers in her eyes*  I SMALL!  I SMAAALLLL!!!

Queen-O and Compost

Molly:  *watching as Butch scrolls through a thread on a forum he frequents, spots a still from the Bud Light commercial about quinoa.*  Hey!  That's the queen-o commercial!

Butch:  That is indeed the queen-o commercial.  That's pretty awesome that you recognized that from just the guy in the Eagles jersey.

Molly:  *continuing to watch her dad's progress through the thread, spots a photo of some sea scallops*  What's that?

Butch:  Those are scallops.

Molly:  Oh.  You can use those for compost.
