Tough Baby Watch

Our daughter is at the age where she's talking constantly but her speech is rarely clear enough for anyone to understand what she's saying. Still, once in a while her clarity of speech is striking.

So my wife was at the pharmacy with her, and sat her on the counter whilst getting a prescription filled. She grabbed a handy pen and was happily scribbling on a handy pad of paper until the cashier took the pen away from her. She began to cry, and the cashier said, "Oh, no dear, don't cry! You'll make me feel bad!" Mary stopped crying, looked straight at the cashier, and said, with perfect clarity, "Feel bad!"
