When I reached home last evening Nikita showed me this drawing she made.
I looked at it, smiled & asked“Where is the ‘r’ in the brother?”
“The ‘r’ is silent” said Nikita after a moments thought.
I looked at her open-mouthed for a sec & then rolled my eyes. Just the day before she asked me the spelling of Ballet, there I explained that ‘t’ was silent & that was why it was pronounced like that.
A minute later…. I asked “But why have put a brother in your family picture? You don’t have one, right.”
“Yes I wanted to talk to u about it. Why don’t u lay one?”
AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH……I was speechless for 2 mins this time.
“Take out your homework and start doing it. Not another word till you finish it”
Lay a brother…….like laying an egg or something. I wasn’t going to touch that one with a bargepole.
