It must be my lucky week, here's a transcript of a conversation I just had with a 2nd grader in my office:
Her "I need to call my mom to pick something up"
Me "Okay, can I tell her what it is?"
Her "It's my TARANTULA's"
Me "Did you say Tarantula's?!?!"
Her "Yes, there are 4 of them"
Me "Where are they?!"
Her "In this bag, I have to leave it here"
Me "Uh no you don't!"
Her "They told me to leave them here"
Me "Well you need to take them with you and I'll call your mom now"
I tell you, the day can only go up from here on! But that's now 2 Tarantula strikes, does this mean I'm going to come across one, for my things happen in three's adage!?
