The following is a conversation between myself and my 5-year-old.
A2: “Papa, I’m hungry.”
Me: “I’m sorry. You asked to be excused from the breakfast table. You need to wait for snack time now.”
Me: “I said, you asked to be excused from the breakfast table. Now you need to wait for snack time.”
A2: “I’m not talking about that.”
Me: [slightly confused] “What are you talking about?”
Me: “Me?” [very confused now]
Me: “What do you want to talk about?”
A2: [pause] “Um. I just want a question.”
Me: “Wha?” [confuso-meter has just shot through the roof]
A2 wanders off.
