Politeness first

Alice: Daddy, I had a bad dream last night!

Dad: You dreamed you were a star-bellied Alice?1

Alice: No. That was a good dream!

Dad: Oh. Did you dream that Daddy hugged you until you popped?

Alice: No.

Dad: Oh, can I hug you until you pop?

Alice: NO!

Dad: Oh.

Alice. You have to say “please may I hug you until you pop?”.

Dad: Please may I hug you until you pop?

Alice: Yes!


1 I got a roll of star stickers for Alice and had been asking her if she wanted to be a star-bellied Alice. She was, for a little bit. Later she was a star-footed Alice as well.
