In the next room, right at this moment, I'm listening as O tries to teach Boo, who is thisclose to being three, how to play Go Fish.
O: Do you have a six?
Boo: Ummmmm....no? Yes. What's dis? (Holds up a card.)
O: You're not supposed to show me your cards!
Boo: Ummmm....ok. Here. (Shows O all her cards.)
O: NO! Boo, don't show me your cards. Now do you have a six?
Boo: Yes. (Hands her a king.)
O: *big sigh* That's a king, Boo. Lemme see your cards. See this one? This is a six. (Takes card from Boo's hand.)
Boo: (indignant) HEY! You took my card!!
O: That's how you play, Boo.
Boo: *sigh* Fine.
O: Do you have a jack?
Boo: No. Yes. Here. (Gives O a king)
O: That's a king, Boo. Let me see your cards.
Boo: Here. (Picks up pile of cards she'd hidden under her knee.)
O: Boo! You're cheating! (Takes jack.)
Boo: I don't wanna play any more, I gonna go colour. (Stomps off in a huff.)
O: Hey, Bug, wanna play cards?
The Bug: Uppies.
O: Take a card, Bug.
The Bug: Uppies. Numnums. (Swats cards out of O's hand and tries to eat one.)
O: No, Bug, you can't eat the cards.
The Bug: Numnums! Uppies!
O: Bug, you got boggers on the cards!
The Bug: Numnum.
