Ha! That is quite a thing to say!
It's not polite to tell a stranger on the bus that they are hot.
You're not a stranger.
Why do you say that?
Dad and Ed talk about you all the time.
That's nice, (as well as embarrassing).Â Does your dad know you are talking to me?
No, he's talking to Ed â€˜bout Marcy, she's Ed's girlfriend.
She got issues.
It sounds like Ed has issues too.
That's what dad says.
He is probably right.
Am I hot?
What a question to ask.
You are very cute.
How come I'm not hot?
Because, little girls are cute; grown ups can be hot.
Do you think my dad is hot?
Which is your dad?
The one in the window seat?
Yup, he says he's invisible.
He told Ed that hot chicks can walk right through him on the street.
He says he has to wear a thick wallet so theyÂ can seeÂ him.
I wonder who is invisible to him.
I dunno.Â I want to be hot, not cute.
No you don't.Â It works like this: when are hot, boys want you.Â When you are cute, boys want to be seen with you.Â When you are nice, everybody wants to be with you.
Thank you, you are nice too, and cute.
I want to be hot.
â€˜cause I want dad and mom to want me.
Who could not want someone asÂ nice as you?
They don't.Â I live at Grandma's so they can date hotties.
Oh sweetie, here comes my stop; I have to get off.Â Anytime you want to talk, you come Â sit with me.
One more thing, tell your dad and Ed that they ARE invisible.
