We’re visiting India and the kids are playing with my brother’s son, Thiralon (the 3yo protagonist). He’s a matter of fact guy who is unintentionally hilarious.
The phone rings at home and Thiralon picks up the phone. It’s his grandpa calling.
Grandpa: Hi Thiralon, how are you?
Thiralon: I’m fine.
Grandpa: What are you doing?
Thiralon: Right now I’m talking to you on the phone.
He’s a rambunctious kid who loves to smash things. He has just smashed down a pillow fort. I’m trying to get him to admit he smashed it.
Me: Thiralon, what happened to the fort?
Thiralon: It broke down.
Me: How did it break?
Thiralon: It broke with a kaboom!
Me: LOL! Of course, it did.
