We asked Joshua to go to bed, and as he stumbled past Hubs, he did the handsign for “milk”.
Hubs asked: “So what should you say?”
Joshua mumbled a barely audible “奶奶”, so Hubs told him to “say it louder”.
So the boy said: “Louder.”
It’s exactly like when I ask Hubs to say something, and he goes: “Something.”
