The following conversation took place in my house the other day. Tabitha (6) had been informed by her mother that she (Tabitha) needed to eat something healthy before eating a chocolate-covered donut. I was—and remain—ignorant of the origins of this donut.
I came in partway through the conversation.
Rachel: I’m going to cut you a small slice of this apple.
Tabitha (6 years old): Do I have to eat the whole thing?
R: The whole apple? No.
T: No, the whole slice!
