Recently Aunt Jess (and her dog Sydney) made the wise choice of calling to talk to Katie during the day. The timing seemed to work and after some animated conversation and Katie proposing the usual — I want to talk to Sydney — we hear this:
Can I talk to your big man?
What was that Katie?
Can I talk to your big man, the one who take care of Lucy.
Lucy is Sydney’s constant companion and belongs to Kevin, Aunt Jess’s boyfriend. Katie has never met either. Apparently though, she has a visual picture of Kevin — he is big. Unfortunately the big man wasn’t around for conversation, maybe next time. Hopefully she doesn’t ask if he lives in the big house.
