This morning in the car on the way to town, Babess and Fainjin both had small piles of books to keep them company. Babess handed one of hers to Pearl and sweetly asked, “Please Pearl, can you read this?”
“OK,” Pearl readily agreed, then (mischievously, I think) started reading it silently to herself.
“You’re not reading it!” her little sister protested.
“Yes I am, I am reading it silently,” Pearl asserted.
“That’s not reading!” scoffed Babess. “You have to talk about it for reading!”
