Heard: Hopscotch and Four Square

I was riding the metro in towards Dupont when four girls got on, I don't know who they worked for but they were clearly interns. One of them asked the others when Congress went to recess. No one seemed to know, but another of the interns asked, incredulously, "They go to recess?"
One of the other interns replied with a straight face that, "Yes, they go on recess, and they play hopscotch and four square." The girl whose question she was responding looked at her, confused, but seemed content with this explanation.
