Word for word

My in-laws like to watch this health programme on TV called 'What's good for you?'.

The other day, I was in the computer room when the programme was on. Suddenly I heard my Dad-in-law shout, "Wah wah!"

"Wow, he must really like the programme..." I thought to myself.

And that's when I realised it. The programme had started and he was just calling my Mother-in-law who was in the kitchen. (In Tamil, the word "wa" means "come".)
