The Invisible Woman

Yesterday, I was driving with my little brother John E, and we stopped to drop off something to our sister. At least 10 minutes after the detour, the following conversation ensued.

John from the back seat: "Hey Diane, did you know I finished my lego walker today?"
Mary: My name is Mary, and yes, you already showed me.
John: No, I was talking to Diane!
Mary: Diane's not in the car.
John: She's not? Where did she go?
Mary: She never got in the car. We just dropped off her toothbrush at her apartment. Remember?
John: I thought she was coming with us.

Either John was too enthralled in his game playing in the back seat to know what was going on, or his perception was skewed by his expectations. Either way, it made for a hilarious moment.

That is so adorable! I often talk to Diane in my car too. Sometimes you just need a passenger and it's best when they don't talk back or interupt.

:D Awesome. I don't know whether to be offended or flattered. I choose... flattered.
