Spent a free day at a nice park last weekend with my brother. We watched butterflies mating, and ducks failing at mating, and stuff like that. But the point is that as we were leaving we crossed paths with a young mom and her 6(?)-year-old kids, and the daughter was running all over the place and kinda on a collision course with us, and when her mom told her "Don't run into the people, sweetheart," a magical thing happened. Her response was:

"They're probably dead!"

That's it. Just as unperturbed as could be. Like, "They won't mind!" It's cool, mom. They're probably dead. I have not been so pleased with something I've heard someone else say in a long time. I vowed to use it in the future to express my lack of concern over wronging someone else in whatever way.

It bugged me that I couldn't imagine what she must have been watching or reading lately that would make her say that-- but now I think it would spoil the magic. So if you know, you can brag that you know, but don't actually tell me.
