Name-calling

Sheesh.

Sample this conversation between two small children -- my niece baby Aish who is three and a half, and... my Mom!

Mom - O grasshopper!

Baby Aish - You called me a grasshopper???

Mom - Yes, you are a grasshopper!

Baby Aish - No! I am not a grasshopper! You are a grasshopper!

Mom - Okay, you are a small monkey!

Baby Aish - No! I am not a small monkey! You are a small monkey!!

Mom - You are a tiny mouse.

Baby Aish - No! I am not a tiny mouse. You are a tiny mouse!!!

Mom (grinning wickedly) - Okay, you are prachanda sundari ("the supreme beauty").

Baby Aish - NO! I am NOT panchan... YOU are PACHANDA SUNDARI!!!

Mom (grinning still) - OK, agreed! Hehehehe...
