*Scene: Naim and Aaron looking out the front window, waiting for our friend, K, to arrive. Light rail train goes by.
A: The train! The Train! Is she coming, now, mama? Is she coming?
Me: No, she's not coming on the train, she's coming in her car.
N: She drive her car?
Me: Yes, she is driving her car here.
N: K need a car, and Grampa Fred need a car, and J need a car.
A: (solemnly, in serious explanation tone) Yeah. They need a car to move. They have to have a car to move.
N: (Nods empathetically) Yeah. They can't ride the bu-US, or ride the tra-AIN, or walk on the sideWALK like we can.
A: (also empathetic) Yeah. They do it a different way.
N: Yeah. They need to drive their car. Then they can't go to the playground on the way to daddy's house.
