201. Sophie at the Supermarket (2)

Scene:  As they walk up and down the aisles with the trolley, Sophie is chatting animatedly to her mother about a cartoon she had been watching before they came out.  Without drawing breath, she then says in her little treble voice:

Sophie, aged 7:  Mummy – about babies.

Mother: (warily and with some dread):   Yeeeees?

Sophie:  Well, you see I know how babies grow in your tummy, and I know how they get out.  But what I don’t know is how they get IN...

Mother (sighing before the inevitable, aware of the smiling faces around her):  Uh...

Sophie (without pausing):  Can I have a Kit Kat?

With thanks to Liz.
