Siena on the phone


Mama took our cat Tenzing in to the office for his annual check-up. I took Siena in to school. In my car, Siena found a little toy phone next to her seat. She picked it up, and proceeded to have this conversation. Imagine a brief pause after each line while she “hears” a response.

Hi mama.

I’m good.

I’m in the car. On the way to school.

After you’re done with work, can you pick me up? [ed. by this point I was nearly peeing my pants trying not to laugh out loud or disrupt her]

Are you driving with Tenzing?


Bye mama.

[to me] That was my mama.

I don’t think she’s had such a coherent, logical phone call with any actual person ever!
