Aidan was sitting on the steps at the backyard, eating his ice cream.
Ah deaahh! Snake! Mummy! Come here! Snake!
(‘Ah deaahh’ may have meant ‘Oh dear’,) I seldom use that word, and wonder if he picked it up from kindy. I went out and he pointed to a corner, and there was this tiny gonggok all curled up. Sorry, I don’t know what it’s called in English. It’s a tiny fat round thing with lotsa lotsa legs. Not a caterpillar, not a centipede, but somewhere along that line 😛
It’s not a snake, bubby. It’s a gonggok.
Eee….. *used my slipper and piak piak that thing* There, no more snake.
Oohhh…. no more snake.
And he continued eating his ice cream.
