I was on the way to the train station to pick Man up. Asna tagged along. We saw a Ribena truck.
“Look, Asna, look!”, I said, while pointing to the truck. Asna looked.
“Oh, wow! It’s Ribena”, she said, in part amazement, part whisper.
“It’s Ribena and his girlfriend”, I told her.
She then nodded. Kept staring at the truck.
I’m not sure if she understood what I meant, being a kid with zero awareness of couples, boyfriends, girlfriends and whatnot (she saw Pucca kissing the boy and assumed that she was kissing her brother HAHAHA). The word “girlfriend” should be new to her vocabulary. So I asked.
“Asna, do you know what a girlfriend is?”
“Yes”, a very firm Yes.
“What is a girlfriend?”
“A girlfriend is a LEMON. But I don’t like lemons”
