Cheryl: I think I want a Volvo again.

Me: I’m sorry, say that again? Because I can’t possibly have heard correctly. The woman who said for years she wanted a BMW, got a BMW, and now says she doesn’t want it anymore, correct?

Cheryl: (Looking sheepish) The thing is, I like my car, but I liked the Volvo more. So when we go to trade, I want another Volvo.

Me: You do know there’s a serious cost discrepancy between the two, right?

Cheryl: Yes, but you love me and that doesn’t matter, now does it.

Me: (Sighing) I just need to buy you a crown. I’ll think about it.
