Fainjin got a couple of emergency-services Lego sets for Christmas, and he and Babess have been playing with them a lot. Today Babess set a miniature alarm clock to beep constantly (yes, very annoying), and rushed around dramatically saying, “Oh no! Da alarm is going off! Dere must be a eMERgency! … Is dere a earthquake in Christchurch?”
Fainjin, who is less dramatic and more technical in his Lego play, barely even looked up as he replied deadpan, “There’s always a earthquake in Christchurch.”
