(Sound of Tess screaming)
Me, rushing into the room: Oh my gosh! How did Tess get Scamps (Roses’s mechanized toy hamster) tangled in her hair!
Rose: I don’t know!
Me: Are you sure?
Rose: Well, I was holding it and it flew out of my hands and landed on Tess.
Me: Did you put Scamps on to Tess’s head, ensuring the mechanized surface was against her hair, and then turned him on?
This afternoon the neighbourhood cat, Ben, wandered in.
Me: Hello, Ben. Have you had your dinner?
Rose, to me: Mummy! He can’t talk!
