Lit­tle boy: Mom­my! I want to get my dad­dy this card!
Moth­er: But hon­ey, you don’t know what that means.
Lit­tle boy: Yes, I do! I do!
Moth­er: Okay, what does it mean?
Lit­tle boy: Pull my fin­ger. It means… pull my fin­ger! That’s what you do, right? You pull the mon­key’s fin­ger.
Moth­er: Um… Hon­ey, you don’t know what that means. Here, why don’t you give Dad­dy this oth­er card in­stead?
Lit­tle boy, cry­ing: No! I do know what it means. I want to get my dad­dy this card! He would like it!
Moth­er, sigh­ing: Okay, fine… But you don’t know what it means.
Lit­tle boy, hap­pi­ly: My dad­dy is re­al­ly go­ing to like this card! I just know it!
