The conversation went something like this:
Me: Hey Bud! What's going on?
NM: Well, we went to get some donuts.
Me: Oh yum! You have a new hat!
NM: Yes. It's a speedracer hat from a big box of things I got for my birthday party.
Me: Are you hunting something today?
NM: No, I'm just waiting for a bad guy. I have handcuffs. And a gun. And a silver thing on my belt.
Me: What's the silver thing on your belt called?
NM: It's called "a thing that tightens my belt"...
