The Ladybug is in full conversation mode, and she’ll strike up a conversation with just about anyone, often with amusing results. Here are two examples from today’s outing:
The Ladybug and I are at Hot Topic, looking for “Perry the Platypus” tee shirts. A sales gal walks up and starts talking to the Ladybug. In true Hot Topic form, she’s got green hair, thirty-eye Doc Martins, and enough facial piercings to transmit and receive radio signals. As they’re talking, the Ladybug point’s to the girl’s day-glo flower-covered JIMI HENDRIX belt.
“Oh, I like your belt,” says the Ladybug. “It’s pretty.”
“Thank you,” says the sales gal.
“Is it Hannah Montana?”
The Ladybug and I are at Dairy Queen sharing a Blizzard. As we eat, a pair of Army soldiers in sand-colored fatigues sits down at the table next to us. The Ladybug leans over to them and smiles.
“Oh, you guys are all matchy! That’s so cute.”
