Once they start talking, they can talk back

"What's that on your face?"

"What's on my face?"

"What did you draw with on your face?"

"What did I..."

"Was it marker?"

Woeful expression. Averted eyes.

"Should I take that as a 'Yes'?"

"Bye bye, Baby," the cashier says. She waves.

Lindsay looks at her quizzically.

"She will say "Bye" and wave about fifteen minutes from now."

A quarter hour later:

"Buh bah," Lindsay says, jerking her whole left arm up and down awkwardly. "Buh bah."
