The kids are now into identifying cars. While, the older one recognizes some of the models and almost all the logos, the younger one has not graduated beyond knowing the owners of each of the cars.
“Look, Shilpa’s car!”
“No, silly. That is not Shilpa’s car.”
“It Shilpa’s car. Shilpa’s car is red.” The younger one hasn’t yet learnt to give up without a fight.
“This is a red car. But it is not Shilpa’s red car. Shilpa’s car is a full-sleeved car, not a small car.”
I had smile. ‘Full-sleeved car’ is so much more evocative than three-box car.
