My favorite odd quote is to be excused on grounds of the tender young age of the declarer. Years ago, a young Mom and her little girl came into my office. I was behind a tall counter and she disappeared when she walked close, so when she spoke, I peered over to see a little figure in a pink jacket, face and head half-hidden beneath a huge fuzzy hat.
I said, "I didn't hear you, Honey---what did you say?"
She repeated, in a tiny voice, "Mah Doddy gotta Zizz Pisssss."
I asked again, she patiently repeated. I stood smiling uncertainly, wondering just where one would purchase one of those. Then it dawned.
I asked "Gold or Silver?" and she replied, "Sivver." And so I learned of her Dad's new ear jewelry.
