"Mom, this is so much fun! I love taking leaves!"
"It would be really awesome if this was the Fourth of July!"
"Did you just say this would be 'awesome if this was the Fourth of July'?"
"Because it would be fun to have a leaf pile on the Fourth of July!"
"What would be so fun about that?"
"Well, it would be warm, because the Fourth of July is in, like, August, right?"
"No, actually the Fourth of July is in JULY."
"Oh, well, it's still too bad that we only get leaves in the fall-- 'cuz this is fall... Right?"
