Pink Shirt

Caleb: (loudly) Dad, WHY is that guy wearing a PINK shirt?
Dad: I guess he likes pink shirts.
Caleb: But he is a man. Why would he wear a pink shirt?
Dad: Some men like pink shirts.
Caleb: Do you like pink shirts?
Dad: They're okay, I guess. I think I have pink dress shirt.
Caleb: Well, you should give it to that guy because it appears that he likes to dress like a GIRL.

Caleb: You said it was a Talker Spaniel. So it can talk?
Dad: I said it was a Cocker Spaniel.
Caleb: What?! Dad, you are joking with me. That is not a Taco Spaniel.

Dad: That's true, Bethie.
Caleb: It is true, but I wish she would stop smiling when she says that.
