Me: I’m having a yard sale Pearl.
Pearl: You’re selling the yard? Oh my dog! Don’t sell the yard! I pee there!
Me: No, I’m not selling the yard. I’m selling this stuff I set in the driveway.
Pearl: I don’t trust you. You just said you were selling the yard.
Me: That’s just what it’s called. Some people call it a garage sale.
Pearl: Oh my dog! You’re going to sell the garage? What about all the tools in there? You’re going to get in trouble when Daddy gets home.
Me: No, I’m not selling the garage either.
Pearl: You just said you were having a garage sale. I don’t trust you. How many more lies have you told me?
Me: I am not lying to you!
Pearl: Oh my dog! There are people coming into the yard! NO PEOPLE! MY YARD IS NOT FOR SALE!
Me: Pearl quit barking at them! You’ll scare them away and I need them to buy my stuff.
Pearl: No! I don’t want them to buy my yard or Daddy’s garage. GET OUT OF OUR YARD PEOPLE!
