I always ask my six-year-old friend Akira if he has the stuff he needs to go swimming, plus a couple of joke items for fun. Today:

Me: Got your goggles?
Akira: Yep.
Me: Got your swimsuit?
Akira: Wearing it!
Me: Got the money?
Akira: Yep [waves it]
Me: Got your butt?
Akira: [Nods solemnly and points]
Me: [Noticing he has nail polish on] Got your nail polish?
Akira: Yes! And earlier today I had paint all over me, and my face was all white!
Me: Oh, were you doing some miming?
Akira: [Serious] No, I can’t do any miming. I don’t have an invisible wall.
