Shane (31): Come on - teeth then shoes then we've got to go.
Alex (6): Chimp!
Alex: Yeah, you chimp!
Shane: (pause) Indeed. Teeth.
Alex: You're a chimp.
Shane: Where did you get 'chimp' from?
Alex: Dunno, just made it up.
Shane: Sounds a bit nasty when you say it like that.
Shane: 'Chimp' is ok, but it's how you say it -
Alex: (chirrups) Chimp.
Shane: That's better.
Alex: (sings) Shane is a chimp.
Shane: (sings) Alex brush your teeth.
Teeth were brushed, shoes were put on, we walked to school. Alex showed me his new classroom. Upon leaving the school I overheard another parent confirm with teacher: 'It is today that they're getting their photos taken, isn't it'. I looked back and noted that Alex was having a particularly unruly hair-day. From afar, his silhouette suggested devil horns.
