Love Bug

I woke up this morning, overhearing my sister's conversation in the other room.
It went something like this:

Veronica (the baby, although she is almost 7): Mommy! Mommy! I found an earwig!!!

Trinity (her older sister): Ewww! That is SO gross!

Veronica: Mommy, can I keep him? He is SO cute.

Trinity: Bugs freak me out. Mom, she is freaking me out on purpose!

Veronica: Mommy! Mommy! She is trying to kill him! Make her stop!

Trinity: *waves tissue around, and finally gets him in her possession*

Veronica: *wailing* She murdered him!!!!!

Trinity: Stop Nica

Veronica: Oh, wait! He's still moving!

*5 minutes pass, and I am in the bathroom brushing my teeth*

Veronica comes in the hallway.

Veronica: *hangs head low* I accidentally killed him.

Trinity: Good

I love hearing things that aren't my own pathetic echoes.
