Ike tells me he’s just spilled some laundry gel. I start to give him detailed instructions to clean it up, but stop myself and say, “Just clean it up like you would if you were grown and you’d spilled it in your own house.” I pause, then correct myself. “Clean it up like you would do if you were grown up and had spilled it in your own house, and you were me.” Ike laughs and says, “Nice catch.”
