Conversation on the swingset at a local park last Wednesday:

Little Girl (LG for short, around 4 years old): “You can’t go to my school because you’re too big.”
“Are you a kid?”
Me: “No.”
LG: “Then why are you on a swing?”
Me: “Because adults need to play, too.”
LG: “And roll in the grass?”
Me: “Yes. I did that the other day.”
