Sonny boy brought back all his activity books ( which have been kept at school till now) yesterday, saying his teacher had said that he could keep them at home from now on. Realization dawned on the parents- summer vacation was round the corner!
Acha: "Sonny boy, you're going to have a looooooong holiday. Where do you want to go? Switzerland?"
(this was just because on Sun, we'd had a newly married cousin to lunch- whose husband is in Switzerland, and the place had been talked about)
Sonny boy: *shaking his head* "uhuh"
Sonny boy: "uhuh" *an eager, expectant twinkle dawning in his eyes*
Acha: *sensing that Sonny boy had someplace in mind* "Where, Sonny boy?"
Sonny boy: *draws an M on the table and looks up eagerly at Acha*
Acha: M? Which place is that? *looks at Amma for a clue.* Amma too draws a blank.
Sonny boy: *the twinkle growing brighter* *draws a D too on the table*
Sonny Boy: :*the stars spilling out of his eyes*Mac Donald's Acha! MAC!!!
