|Beth:||[age 4] "Let's play a game."|
|Me:||"Okay. What do you want to play?"|
|Beth:||"Let's play that aliens are attacking us. And we're tigers who have to fight them. And I'm your sidekick."|
|Me:||"That sounds cool. Do we have names?"|
|Beth:||"Yes! Your name is Azore."|
|Me:||"Azore... that sounds cool. So what's your name?"|
|Me:||"Scratchypants? My sidekick's name is Scratchypants?"|
|Beth:||"If this is going to be a problem, then maybe you should find a new sidekick."|

Major kudos to whoever came up with the original.

|Beth:||"I didn't hurt MY FIGHTING HAND!" [punches Luke in the stomach with her good hand]|
