On rhetoric.

Mummy. I’m not sure we should go to the park today.

Oh? How come?

Well… you know, that little girl with her [makes mysteriously three-fingered air quotes] “Sad Face” who always wants me to give up the swing after two seconds.

Ah, well, I’m not sure we should let her limit what we do.

Ok – hey did you enjoy my use of air quotes?

Oh yes – although you know quotation marks are only two little marks, so you could do it with two fingers on each hand rather than three.

Ha – but what you didn’t know is that I was doing SLOTH QUOTES – and of course you need THREE fingers for those! [Laughs maniacally]
