Blake and I were walking out of the library.
B: There was eyeball sticking out of the ground back there.
Me: I kind of doubt that. Would you like to go back and show me so we can see what it is?

Me: Visitor, son, not intruder.
J, watching the beginning of a YouTube video: Awesome! It’s a Longhorn ad! You can’t skip a Longhorn ad!
