We had a longish drive home, and the children were playing I Spy. They’d all had several turns, and Pearl said, “I spy with my little eye, something beginning with S”.
Fainjin and Babess took several guesses. “Nope!” said Pearl. “I’ll give you a hint, it’s inside the car.”
They each took several more guesses. After a loooong time, Pearl smugly revealed, “Ha! I was tricking you! It’s not inside the car! Guess again.”
“Pearl?” Babess said wearily. “When you see this bored look on my face, it means: I’m bored.”
Game, set and match to baby sister.
