Meimei was sitting besides me at the computer table, fidgeting with chair. Suddenly there was tears in her eyes and she looked scared.
I realised she was stuck in the hole at the back of the chair while climbing through it.
I rescued her out, and asked what if I couldn’t get her out?
”鲁朵我不能出来的话，你就叫fireman 来救我咯“ (You can call the fireman to save me out)
I hadn’t expect her to know the exact authority to call for help in this situation and was quite surprised by her reply.
We were on the bus going to a nearby place.
Baobao talked about how he enjoys a ride on a double decker or a long bendy bus.
We must have talked about why we needed these buses – to carry more passengers. And then he went on to mutter something … which I only began noticing when he was in the middle of it. He said,
“How do you decide when to use which bus? When you are on a route with a lot of trees, you use the long bendy bus.. And when you use a route with many turns, you use the double decker..”
Lot of trees will hinder the tall double decker – so use bendy bus. Many turns doesn’t favour a long vehicle – so use double decker.
Of course there are realities like if you use a double decker, you will make sure the branches are out of the way…but I like his basic logic. It’s wonderful to hear something like that fresh from the kid’s head.
