city girl detection

For those of you who do not know, our family lives on an acre and a half about ten miles out of a small town called Washington, Iowa. Our "farm" consists of, a small flock of chickens and ducks, use to have three goats and a lamb, (long story don't ask) and finally a dog and three cats. Not even a farm compared to most of our farmer friends. But our city friends come over and go crazy about our "farm" and never want to leave blah, blah, blah! :)

So, Grace has come up with a city girl detection method that seems to help us spot them VERY quickly. The conversation goes something like this.

Grace comes running into the house yelling loud enough for the whole house to hear...

Grace: beth beth! the giraffe is out! it jumped the fence again!

City girl: you have a giraffe? wow! cool! can i see it?

Grace: yeah. you can help us get it back in. it always gets out.

City girl (in a dumb founded tone): WOW!

Grace (and all th other lids start laughing): just kidding! but we do have a panda!

City girl: awe! can i pet it?

They don't get it!
