overheard in Brooklyn

(on my corner, after a very long day at work, walking home from the subway on a sticky, hot day)

Two girls, at most 6 years old, splinter off from a group playing in the spray from a hijacked fire hydrant:

Girl 1: "Hey, let's go play at my place!  I live just right there!"
Girl 2 (hesitating): "Oooh.  I been playing all day....  Ima wear myself through."
