My mother was talking to my five-year old nephew this week, asking him if he was excited about seeing our new truck.
"I've already seen it, Nana." he said.
"What do you mean, you already saw it??" she said.
"On the laptop. Aunt Salena showed me. Don't you remember?" he said.
"Ohhhh, I didn't know she showed it to you on the laptop." she answered.
"Yeah, she did. See, that's why I need a laptop. Maybe you can get one for me; it's only $211.00 and I really need it." (Helloooo....I want to know where to get a $211 laptop!!)
"Why do you need a laptop?" my mother asked.
"Because, Nana. I'm not good at pecking and stuff." he said.
"And how do you think the laptop will help?" she said.
"If I have my own laptop, I'll be able to practice and I'll learn how to peck faster!"
I just know my mother is going to be banging her head against the wall trying to find him a $211.00 laptop; I guess I should warn her now that they don't exist.
