Dad: How many stars?
Gwen: I WANT FIVE STARS! One, two, three, four, five. One two three four five six seven eight nine ten... One two three... continues counting to ten several times... occasionally going up to thirteen.
Dad: Have you stopped thinking about the review and just started counting? Why do you want to give it five stars?
Gwen: Because I'm FIVE!
D: You just turned five?
G: Yes! I just turned five.
D: What was the book about?
G: It was aboooouuut... A girl... let me read it... It was about a girl who got some really yummy bananas and something took them from her. And then she got something else and something else and something else...
D: Who took the bananas?
G: I don't remember. Let me see. (Starts singing: Let me see who took the baNAAAAnas. Let me see who took the baNAAAnas...) The wind. The wind took the bananas. Because it was strong and it blowed the bananas away. So the bananas blowed into the lake.
D: Are you sure? Give me that book. (Looks at book.) No! It wasn't the wind, it was a giraffe. It was the giraffe's tale.
G: Oh. (smiles)
(In Gwen's defense, we read this only once, well before dinner, and it's now well after dinner...)
D: What was your favorite part?
G: My favorite part was when she got more bananas by the elephant. I mean, when she got more bananas from an elephant.
D: You want to be done with the review?
D: Thanks for writing it with me. Do you want to read it?
