Overheard this mainly one-sided conversation:
"How's your daughter?"
"Oh, good. Unfortunately. She made the State swimming carnival."
"Yeah. I wish she wasn't so good at swimming!" [rueful laugh]
"It means I have to travel and sit on my butt all day watching her. Also, all that early morning training! I tell ya, it kills me having a kid who just keeps winning stuff."
And I didn't even make that up.
