Loners

Isaac:  “What if Mom never comes back [from the store]?”
Richard: “Well, we would have to figure something out.”
Isaac:  “I know, we can become ‘roners” and roam the country!”
Richard:  “You mean ‘loners’?”
Isaac:  “Yeah, them!”
Richard:  “You know, that’s a pretty good idea.  I’m good at that.”
Isaac: “Okay, but lets not go where there are volcanoes.”

Richard at the Doctor

During a 100° heatwave
Doctor:  “You’ve been working outside in this heat?”
Richard: “Yes.  It’s not that bad”
Doctor: “Doesn’t that aggravate your asthma?”
Richard: “Sure.  Last week I was in a 10ft deep hole working for awhile.  That really made the asthma flare up.”
Doctor: [long pause] “Really?  You’re serious?  That’s what you do when your asthma is acting up?”
Richard: “Well, not always. . . “

Ringer

Richard: “Hi Isaac. What are you doing?”
Isaac: “Talking to you on the phone.”
Richard:  “Um, okay.  What were you doing before that.”
Isaac: “Trying to call you.  Your ringer must be broken!”
