The last time my Mom was coming over, Sonny boy tom-tommed all over that his grandmother was coming to be with him.
Grandmoms being a favourite species with young kids, the day she arrived, in the evening, Sonny boy's best friend A,a Tamilian boy, came eagerly knocking.
"Sonny boy, where's your paati? Show me your paati".
Sonny boy collapsed in gales of shocked laughter.
"Amma!", he shrieked between the laughs. A's telling me bad things, he's asking me where's my POTTY!!!! and he rolled his eyes at me, guffawing.
An affronted A told me, "Sonny boy's being a very bad boy. He's not showing me his paati".
Sonny boy literally rolled on the floor laughing!!!
Amma hid her grin from the nonplussed A and explained to Sonny boy that Paati meant Ammamma in Tamil. Sonny boy finally got it, but it can still send him off into peals of mirth.
