Me: Hi! How are you?
Friend: Hi! Good, you?
Me: We're well.
Friend (bending down to Myriam's eye level): Hi little lady! Are you ready to go back to school or are you enjoying your summer break?
**You might note that Myriam is great at answering yes or no questions but if you want her to infer details or come to any conclusions on her own, all bets are off.
Myriam: I go to school in August.
Friend: Oh... but are you having fun this summer or do you like school better?
Myriam: School is in August, it's June.... *mumbles something under her breath, and looks at the floor*
Friend: Do you like when you go to school or summertime better?
Myriam: (said slowly) June... July... August... School is in Auuuuuguuuust!
Friend: Yes, but...
Myriam: (louder but still slowly and counting on fingers) JUNE... JULY... AUGUST.... JUNE.. JULY... AUGUST! SCHOOL'S IN AUGUST!
Me: Myriam, are you having fun this summer?
Myriam: Oh yes! I like to swim and play outside.
Friend: What did I do wrong there?
Me: Too many words, too many words....
Me: (laughing) No problem.
Friend: Bye Becca. (bending down to Myriam's level) Bye Myriam.
Myriam: Remember Auuuguuust!
