Brunch at The Bee, Jaya One, on Saturday.
(Brandon sees the waitress plonking a bowl of brown sugar on our table.)
Brandon: Mummy, can I eat the sugar please?
Me: No Brandon, you can’t.
Brandon: But why?
Me: Because you’ll be bouncing off the walls. You can’t eat sugar just like that. Let’s wait for your lunch, okay?
(A little while later, I stir two teaspoons of sugar into my cup of coffee.)
Andrea, gesturing at my coffee and me: Mummy, do you want to bounce off the walls? You bounce off the walls, okay?
