Describing words
March 22, 2013

describingwordsD: Mum, do you like rats?

Me: Well they’re not my FAVOURITE animal, but they’re OK.

D: Do you like cats or do you like dogs?

Me: I like both, but I probably prefer dogs because they can understand us more.

D: I prefer cats. What do cats do when we tell them something?

Me: Generally ignore it. Unless it’s about food.

D: Oh – yes, if it’s food they come RUNNING in…. Well, John has a rat and it BIT his finger!

Me: Ah – rats are not so nice when they bite.

D: That’s what I thought. And I’ve got a cough that’s as nasty as rats that bite!

Sounds from the wilderness

soundsfromD: On my way back from school I saw a wild cat – when I looked at it, it looked at me and Sophie and it went “hhheh!” [makes an angry cat face]

Me: And what did you do?

D: I looked at it again and it went “hhheh!” again.

Me: What do you think it was trying to say?

D: It was trying to say “I want to pull your hair out!”
