Day says the most realistic, pragmatic, cynical things these days.
If it’s not a complaint (it’s too hot!) it’s a negative opinion (what’s so great?).
He’s getting into the realm where responses are limited to “I don’t know”, “anything”, “later” and “so what”?
I’m glad I captured some of the cutesy things he used to say.
In anticipation of the fact that Lu might well go the same way (even though she’s a girl and I am told girls are quite different from monosyllabic boys), I’d better record some of her cutesy speak.
Context: She sees people getting married on TV.
Lu: Mummy, can I marry a terrapin?
Context: She draws circles on the cupboard and refuses to confess.
Lu: (pouting and teary) I didn’t draw anything, mummy. Maybe it was a ghost.
(Day and Jo start laughing very loudly)
Lu: (even more teary than before) Maybe it was a germ?
