she's a DRAGON, lady. get over it.

At Michaels yesterday:
Checkout lady to Lucy: So what are you going to be for Halloween?
Lucy: Um--ah, a DRAGON!
Lady: Oh! I thought you were going to say a fairy. Because you're SO SMALL.
Lucy: ??
Lady: You know you can't be a big dragon, though, right? Because you're SO SMALL?
Lucy: ??
Lady: So are you going to be a baby dragon?
Lucy: I--I a big, SCARY DRAGON!
Lady: Oh.

Good for Lucy for standing up to check out lady - that's just insane! And the check out lady -- she's gonna be a witch! :)

You know--what's sad is that she was very nice. Sometimes I'm amazed at how people just cannot talk to children. I don't claim any great kids skills (especially pre-parenthood) and even I know better than this :)
