The parents of one of Ella’s preschool friends own the local fish and chips shop. She sometimes gets to pay her a quick visit if she’s in the area after school.
Me – Ella, whenever you mention Elle, you only ever talk about the lollies you get when you go visit her. You wouldn’t want her to think that you only like her because of the lollies, do you? Because that would be rather rude.
Ella – Mu-um! I don’t just go visit her because of the lollies. Yesterday her mum gave us an ice cream!
I give up.
