"How was pre-school today, Demon Baby?"
"Hey . . . come on. Did you sing a song? Did the teacher make you do that Baa-Baa-Black Sheep rhyme again? Did you paint? Did you go on the playground?"
"How come you won't talk?"
"I will tell you how my day is. But first, you have to spell LEMUR."
"Lemur? Like the animal?"
"Yes. Spell lemur and then I will tell you about my day."
"All right, then. L-E-M-U-R."
Frowns. Walks away.
"I thought you were going to tell me about your day now."
"No. I have to think of a harder word for you."
