A man was at our house installing a new back door. After he finished, he was trying to get out the door when social hyena Caroline spied him. She ran to him, "Hi. My name's Caroline." And so it went. The poor guy minding his own business... and she wanted to chat him up. I attempted to shorten the conversation, but she managed to get in an introduction to her stuffed dog.
Caroline: Isn't she cute? Her name is Nesty!
Guy: Oh yeah, she's cute alright. Looks like a good dog.
Caroline: She's the best! Sometimes she's a he, but I decided she's a girl.
Guy: Oh. [awkward pause] Hey, do you take her for walks?
Caroline: No. Well, you see, she's a toy.
