My son has got flu again.
He had just recovered from flu 2 weeks ago and now he's suffering from another round of flu.
This morning he asked me,
Sya: 'Mommy, when nose water (nasal fluid) goes into the mouth what is it called?'
Me: 'Hmm.. mouth water (口水)?' I jokingly said. Laughing alone with my joke.
Sya: 'So does that mean we can swallow it like what we do with saliva?', he looked at me seriously.
Oh no...I never imagined this would come.
Me: 'Ermmmm... what do you think dear? Would you swallow it?'
Sya thought for a while and said,' No mama, because it was in the nose before, I didn't feel too good to swallow it so I spat it out. Is that ok?'
Me: 'Mama thinks you should spit it out too. Good decision Sya...' I answered, pretend to be serious too.
Fuh...lega rasanya. For a moment, I thought he would take my joke seriously and actually swallow the 'nose water which had become mouth water'.
Bad bad joke mommy!
Ayah tergolek menahan gelak...
