A Max Dialogue

Scene: The Car, Norman

From the back seat, Max : I need to tell you something.

Mom: What?

Max: Cars don’t wear clothes.

Mom: That’s right.

Max: If they did wear clothes they couldn’t go over the wheels.

Mom : Yup.

Max: I need to tell you something.

Mom: Yes?

Max: Buses don’t wear clothes. If they did they would be very very long clothes. And where would they shop if they did wear clothes?
