Hank: Mama, Do you know pêssego?

Me: Peach?

Hank: I don’t know.  Is peach the fuzzy fruit?

Me: Exactamente (exactly).

Hank: Did you know I like pêssego?

Me: Not until this very moment.

Hank: I do.  Oh, I do.  I like to hold it in my hands and then bite in.  I like the smell and the fuzzy and the taste.

Me: What else?

Hank:  I had a whole pêssego at school.  It was so very messy, but good messy.  Can you buy pêssego for me?

Me: It would be my pleasure.  And do you know what they call the sementes de pêssegos (peach seeds)?

Hank: What?

Me: Peach pits.

Hank: That is silly.  That makes my brain giggle.
