[Scene: Connor is playing around his bedroom and the living room; I am messing about on the Internet.]
Connor: This is SO EXCITING! Are you EXCITED? Let’s CATCH IT!
Connor: YOU CAUGHT IT! Good job!
[pitter-patter pitter-patter thud]
Connor: I know! Thank you! I DID do a good job, didn’t I!
[thud thud… SQUEAK! pitter-patter thud]
Connor: Oh, my GOODNESS! You SURE did a good catch!
Me: Um, Connor?… Who are you talking to?
Connor: I’m just talking to my new balloon. He’s my best friend!
[pitter-patter thud thud pitter-patter squeak thud]
Connor: There, now! I told you to STAY INSIDE! Oh, it’s okay, you don’t have to cry.
