Another anecdote I just felt I needed to pass on/archive:
On Valentine's day, as I was getting ready for work up in the bedroom, Olivia joined me there. Unbeknownst to me she had been instructed to stall me up there while Suzanne arranged some Valentine's day things downstairs. Also part of the set-up to this story is that a few days before I had moved some boxes that had been in the middle of the bedroom for a long time onto a closet, resulting in some clear floor space.
Olivia came to the door and said "I really like what you've done with this space." I thanked her of course, and said something about having those boxes out of the way.
"and where did you get that shirt?"
I was wearing a t-shirt from the Scott's Hut race, in Antarctica- I was again all too happy to talk about that. As I was getting ready to leave the bedroom, she put her hands on each side of the doorframe and called to Suzanne to see if all was ready, at which point I realized she had been sent to stall me. Note that all of these lines were completely uncoached.
I tell you she's going to be an actress. I guess an alternative is con artist...
