I also make a lot of random conversation. Often with small children! See, most moms at the pool are off on the side, lounging in a chair while their kids' swim. However, Henry can't swim so I am on him like white on rice. Therefore, I often end up being the only adult in the kids' pool.
Small Child: Hi. Are you his Mom?
Small Child: Don't let him go in very deep. He cannot swim.
Me: Good point. Thanks!
Small Child: Do you have a dog?
Small Child: Hey, guess what? I am going to get a dog soon.
Me: That's cool. A big dog or a small dog?
Small Child: Like, probably a german shepherd. Or a hunting dog.
