Conversation between two frequent flyer patients, their families, and the child life staff:
Katie*: We're getting a puppy soon!
Katie's mom*: I'm just a little overwhelmed about how many supplies we have to get!
Liam's mom*: I know what you mean. Before we got our dog I nearly had a heart attack at how expensive everything is. Can you believe they charge ten dollars for a rope dog toy at most stores?
Bethany: You know, when we first got our dog we actually found the dollar store was a GREAT place to buy toys, they were cheap, and those toys actually lasted a lot longer than the more expensive ones.
Katie: (With an utterly confused and stunned expression) Wait... you mean they DON'T sell dollars at the dollar store???
*Not anyone's real names
