Excerpts from a conversation between a dad and (nearly) five year old…
Dad: *with a lot of hope* Do you miss me?
Daughter: Hmmmm… No.
Dad: *regains composure and replies in a weak voice* Okay.
Daughter: *after an uncomfortable silence* What is that? Missing?
Dad: *after thinking a bit* Do you want me to come back home soon?
Daughter: *excited and in a loud voice* Yeah! That is what I ask everyone. When are you coming back? *pause* Is that “missing”?…
