Me: (reading on the sofa)
Hank: Can I take a study break?
Me: Of course. The best way to study is to focus calmly and then walk away from the material to see what you have truly retained.
Me: (going back reading)
Hank: Can you make me a cup of tea?
Me: Sure I can.
Hank: And can you make you a cup of tea and can we drink a cup of tea, and use sugar cubes and milk and talk, just us, while Amália and Avó (grandmother) are napping?
Me: I have been waiting my whole life for this invitation.
Hank: You have?
Me: (getting up to put the kettle on) You have no idea.
