At the grocery store, we passed some somewhat fresh egg noodles in a clear package. I was picking out pasta sauce when Morgan said, pointing, "Those rubber bands are supposed to be food." Just as deadpan as you please.

On the same trip we were going out into the parking lot. The van was parked on a slope and Morgan was in the kid seat of the cart. I pulled the cart around to the passenger side and opened the big door while holding the cart up (to keep it from rolling down the hill). Suddenly, all at one moment, Morgan was standing up in her seat getting ready to jump into the open van while, WHOOSH, a huge white delivery truck *flew* by (behind the van) and to the back of the store. My heart did a little flip. IF she had lost her balance, she could have fallen out of the cart and gotten run over. Or, IF I had accidently let go of the cart while trying to unlock and open the van door (while keeping Harley in), the whole cart, including Morgan, would have rolled RIGHT into the path of that truck. Whew. I'm still a little shook up and Morgan looked at me like I was crazy when I told her that it was scary.
