"I oo?" as a small metal instrument slides in beside the mirror.

"I eat a pound of carrots at work."
"A pound? Is that all you eat?"
"No, that's for breaks and lunch."
The dentist greets me as she's finishing up the scraping process and I say, "What's up, Doc?" with my standard Vulcan hand wave as she says, "He has orange teeth!"

"They're orange! He has orange teeth!" he's surprised.
"You didn't believe me." she says. "He eats a pound of carrots every day."
"A pound? That's a lot of Beta Carotene. Can you have too much Beta Carotene?"
