Me: Hank, how old are you?
Me: How many fingers do you have?
Hank: (looks) Ten.
Me: Have you looked out the window?
Hank: YES and there is sun. What are we going to do?
Me: We have sleeping dragons to feed, a fairy to buy for Mariana F.’s birthday this weekend, magazines to read at the library, and cafés to visit. Not to mention three museums.
Hank: I am getting on my shoes.
Me: But wait, before we go we have chores.
Me: I feel the same way. What are your chores?
Hank: Talheres (silverware) to the table, cleaning up my room, and washing my face, brushing my teeth and faz xixi (pee) before bed.
Me: Today you get one more. And this way we get going faster. I will wash the lunch dishes and put away the food if you take the dry clothes from the drying rack and then bring me the clothespins.
Hank: Where do I put the clothes?
Me: In the laundry basket I provide.
Hank: Then what?
Me: Then I have to put the wet clothes out into the sun and after we may leave.
Hank: I will help you with the wet clothes too. I want to leave fast. I need adventure.
Me: Lets get to work.
