A conversation between a mother and her daughter, while driving in the car to Target.
Lilly: Mom, where does Dad work?
Me: He's called a computer programmer, Lil. He works with computers.
Lilly: Oh. But where does Dad work?
Me: He works in a big office building, over there. (Me, pointing.) In Sandy.
Lilly: Wow! I had no idea he had to travel so far to go to work! I can't believe Dad works in Texas!
Me: Texas! No, he doesn't work in Texas! What makes you say that?
Lilly: You said Sandy. And that is where Sandy is from. You know, Sandy from SpongeBob. The squirrel? She's from Texas!
Me, laughing: Lilly! Dad works in Sandy. It's the name of a city.
Lilly: In Texas?! Cool...my Dad works in Texas.
Me: No, no! Sandy is a city that is close to where WE live. Dad works in an office building, the office building is in Sandy. Sandy is a city. It's a city right by us. It's not in Texas! It's not far away! It's close. (Me, pointing again.) That way. Right there!
Lilly: What are we talking about?
