Proof that English is over complicated...

Ashwin wanted to play hide and seek (or rather hide and count as he calls it) one day. Thatha told him to go and count. His response?

But whobody no do hide you know... (translated from Tamil, yaarume hide pannala!)

His favourite pose these days is to stand upside down on the sofa. The other day I told him not to do that when there was noone in the room with him.

My exact words as I was walking into the room were: Don't do that when there's nobody in the room. You'll get hurt.

Ashwin: Now there is yesbody??!
