“I’m gonna need some help.”

Lil’ monkey: I’m gonna need some help with one — no, two — no, three things.

Baba: What’s that, sweetie?

Lil’ monkey [Unfurling stubby little three-year-old fingers, one by one, as she talks]: One, you need to help me put my shirt on. Two, I need help opening the shirt drawer. Three, you need to help me put on my overall dress. And four, I need help pulling it down over my head.

Baba: Do you know how to spell Virgo, honey? Y-O-U.

[Pause.]

Lil’ Monkey: Isn’t there a “V” in that?
