I'm at the registers doing my thing when a Mom (M) and her 5-ish daughter (D) come up. The mom has a small basket with some snacks, jars of peanut butter/jelly, and napkins, while the daughter is gently cradling a scrubby holder in the shape of a unicorn.
>S: Hello, ma'am. How are you today?
M: I'm fine. How are you?
S: I'm fine, thank you. *(Looks over counter at D)* Well, hello there!
D: *(Come up to counter, places unicorn in front of me)* I'm buying this!
S: Well, so you are! Do you have any money?
D: *(Looks confused, then at M)* No...
S: Well then, I guess your Mom will have to get it for you then. Ma'am?
M: *(Laughs)* I suppose I'll have to!
S: *(Scans unicorn, hands back to D)* There you are, ma'am.
M: D, what do you say?
D: Thank you!
S: You're very welcome. *(Scans rest of items)* You're total is $10.67.
D: Ten. Sixty. Seven. What does that mean, mamma? Is that ten dollars and...?
S: Oh, I was saying the number very quickly. It's actually One Thousand and Sixty-Seven dollars.
D: *(Looks at M)* Is that true?
M: Oh yes, it's very expensive.
D: But why?
S: Well, you DID buy a unicorn, after all.
D: *(Looks down at the unicorn in her hands, then at M)* Really?
M: Oh, yes. Be careful with your unicorn.
M: *(To me)* Thanks for that.
S: Not a problem, ma'am. You two have a good day.
M: You, too. Come on, D.
D: *(To me)* Bye! *(To M)* I'm gonna tell all my friends I got a thousand dollar unicorn!
