Me: That’s Erika.

Em: Ekka go to your work?
Me: Yes, she works in the same building.
Em: You see her?
Me: Well, yes, I saw her just then.
Em: I see Rumour [or possibly Ruma?]
Me: You see who?
Em: Rumour. I see Rumour Mummy.
Em: Yes. Rumour.
Me: Oh, you know Bruce Willis’ daughter do you?
Em: Yes, I do. She got my granny’s dawdles [or something like that]
Me: Your granny’s dawdles?
Em: Yes, she does.
Me: What’s that?
Em: Ummm (pause, finger on cheek in classic ‘I’m thinking’ pose) Hmmm, let me think about it. (pause) Oh, I know what it is. We got to go to Daddy’s tickle party!
