Apple and sandwich
The children were playing “restaurants” today. (You would think we ate out regularly!). It went something like this.
Isabelle: Hello customer.
Aidan: (Sitting at the table). Hello.
I: What is your name?
A: Ummmmm – Mama [cute! Getting into the role play thing I guess]
I: [Not having any of this]. Aidan. (Writes on her pad).
I: Aidan C-R? [Using my and Brendon’s surnames in a hyphenated fashion]
I: Would you like some food?
A: Apple and sandwich.
I: (Writing) Apple and sandwich. Password? [Obviously been watching me at the computer for too long!]
I: OK. One moment. (Comes into the kitchen to where I’m preparing dinner). Chef, my customer would like an apple and a sandwich. How long will that take?
Me: Dinner is in about 1 hour.
I: Right. He’s very hungry. My customer is very hungry. Here is his order (shows me the pad with writing on it). He wants an apple and a sandwich.
An apple and a sandwich were not forthcoming (due to the proximity of dinner). Luckily the customer didn’t seem to mind.
