Sometimes I don't even have to leave the house for the best dialogue gathering...
After the longest, most frustrating Sunday in history, I was getting Grover's uniform ready for school the next day...
Undershirt, polo, slacks, socks, check!
Shoes... shoes... where the heck is the other shoe???
Me: James! Have you seen Grove's school shoe?
James: Just one?
Me: Yes, just one, so you've seen the other one?
James: I saw you with one...
Me: Nevermind... Grove, where is your other school shoe?
Me: You just wore them to church today, where did you take them off?
Grove: Dunno... (noticing the lone shoe in my hand) you have one, where'd ya get that one from?
Me: What does it matter where I got it... Where is the other one?
Grove: Dunno... Guess I can't go to school tomorrow.
Me: NO! You will just be going to school with one shoe... How about that?
Grove: Was that shoe in the bathtub?
Me: Um... No.
Grover: Maybe the other shoe is in the bathtub...
Me: Why is it in the tub???
The missing shoe was, indeed, in the bathtub, along with two soggy socks, and the business card of our family friend... What where they doing in the bathtub?
