Dinner conversation tonight…
Claire: Guys, listen! I have some amazing news!
Me: Oh yeah? What is it?
Claire: Daddy, are you listening too?
Chris: Yes, Claire. What’s the news?
Claire: Well, there is this new boy in my class. But I don’t know his name yet. I’m just learning it.
Chris: Oh yeah? Does he seem like a cool dude?
Claire: Well…I didn’t really get to talk to him a lot. (Troubled look on her face)
Me: Did you not have enough time today?
Claire: No, that’s not the problem. (Sigh and long pause) The problem is, he speaks English. And I don’t know how to do that.
