Reported conversations No. 18 : the compliment's in the simile

Five degrees at 8:30am. Patchy sunshine.Today we spotted this year's first butterfly.

Recently, Mama was called to the kindergarten to bring home AJ, who had developed a raging fever. On the drive home, my red-cheeked sneezy-boy broke his sweaty silence with, "Sofia said I was as hot as a stove, and then Andrea said I was as hot as the sun...".

Ever eager to build a lesson in English on an everyday situation, Mama replied, "As hot as chilli peppers." AJ suggested, "As hot as summer", and Mama put in, "As hot as the jungle."

After a pause, and a sleepless-night-to-come cough, the hoarse little voice piped up again from the back of the car : "Hot as ...

... Mama!"

You gotta like the kid!
