Carlin age 5
Chance: Carlin, I “don’t got” anymore cookies to give you.
Mimi: Chance, do not say you “don’t got” say, you don’t have.
Chance: Mimi, I’m just a little boy. I have plenty time to
get all that right.
Chance: Mimi, how much does an elephant weigh?
Mimi: I don’t know Chance.
Chance: Well, can’t you get on that computer and find out?
Mimi: Chance, how was your first day at school?
Chance: It was alright. I just didn’t know it was hard work.
Mimi: What do you mean hard work?
Chance: You have to walk down the hall in a straight line.
Can’t put your hands on the walls. No talking in line.
Mimi: Well Chance, I never looked at it that way.
Just make sure you continue to do what you’re told.
Chance: Other than that, it was alright.
Chance: Mimi, can I have some more pancakes with sprinkles on them.
Mimi: Yes, but wait a minute Chance. (He goes off
and play for about 30 minutes and return)
Chance: Mimi, can I have some pancakes with sprinkles
Mimi: Just a minute Chance.
Chance: Mimi, I’ve already waited a minute.
Carlin: Mimi, I told my friend how to get to our house.
Mimi: What did you tell your friend?
Carlin: I said, go up and up the street, then turn, if you see a brown house,
go straight up the road. Our house is brick and have a car in
the front of the yard.
