While Standing in the Post Office line by a 5-ish-year-old and her Mom

Girl: Oh look! A baby!
Me: [Smile]
Mom: Haha, she's more baby hungry than I am.
Girl: Let me see him better!
Me: [I turn him toward her]
Girl: Can I hug him??
Me: Well, he's all strapped in this thing [the Bjorn] and sleeping, so....
Girl: Well that doesn't mean I can't hug him! [She hugs his legs. Mother leaves the line to buy stamps from a kiosk.]
Who does he look like??
Me: His Dad.
Girl: What does his Dad look like?
Me: Like him, but older.
Girl: What's the baby going to look like when he's grown up?
Me: I don't know, but probably his Dad.
Girl: What about when he's 10?
Me: Who knows? We'll just have to see.
Girl: 9?
Me: I don't know.
Girl: 8??
Me: No clue.
Girl: 7???
Me: Not sure.
Girl: 6???
Me: It's anybody's guess.
Girl: 5???
Me: Don't know yet.
Girl: 4??
Me: What do you think?
Girl: 3?????
Me: Who can tell????
Mom: Mia, what are you doing??
Girl: 2????
Me: Beats me!
Girl: 1???
Mom: Mia, come over here please.
Girl: [Spots my friend Lisa who's at the counter mailing a package and Lisa's baby in the stroller,] Look! Another baby!!!! [She runs over]..............................

How did Ruby go back in time 3 years ago and then fly all the way to a post office in CA without me knowing it? Strange.

This story still makes me laugh out loud.

I think the best part is how you think of different answers that say the same thing each time. Funny.
