Pickles

Sempi loves pickles. He'd eat them at every chance. 

We're at an indoor play place in Chennai. We ordered some fried potato wedges. When they were delivered, Sempi exclaims "Appa, I found bread pickles".


Conversations with a 3yo

We're at a park in India. Sempi is sitting on a teeter-totter looking contraption. He's looking for a partner for the other side. 

Sempi: Amma can you sit on the other side? 

Yoshi: I'm too big to sit on that side Sempi. 

Sempi: Appa, can you sit on that side?

Me: I'm flattered that you think I'm smaller than your mom. But I'm still too big.

Sempi: Maybe when you're flatter you can sit on the other side. 


It was an unintentional pun joke, but I laughed heartily.
