I was pulling on my wellingtons, at the back door, for a dose of leaf sweeping, when my eight year old son called out "Mum, what does persuade mean?".
"Sort of ' to make someone choose to do something , by telling them things." , I replied distractedly, my mind already on where I'd left the rake.
Later, while putting away his homework, my eyes fell on the book report.
Last question : 'What would you tell a friend to persuade them to read this book?'
Answer: ' If you read this book I will give you five Euros. If you don't read this book, I will punch you in the face.'
That's so cute!
And also you said wellington's...that's a British word! What about gumboots! When I used to say gumboots in the UK no one knew what I was on about.
That is so adorable!!
I'm convinced. I'll read the book. :P
That made me smile. Thanks for that, I needed it.
(No problems whatsoever with your site now - thanks for that too.)
That really made me laugh, Thanks :-)
Kids are so funny :)
I'm persuaded :)
We had a good laugh at home too !
Well, that is pure persuasion indeed.
Oh my I laughed so hard! It's probably not funny about the physical part but I do like the persuasion with money part...I could easily be persuaded with money (more then 5 euros of course.
Dollyna- good to see you !
Lucia- Well money is universal language isn't it? 5 euros is a lot to an eight year old !
I laughed at loud at the answer. Classic. I'm gonna have to remember that one.
PS--I like your name! ;-)
I just read the comment that you left regarding the hike....hmmmm...you think that a person could be persuaded to visit Hawaii? ;-)
stillifeinbuenosaires- Thanks !
It takes me a while to write yours out !
Rowena - I don't think that you'd have a problem with Hawai !
In any case, you can take my son's advice and add a few zeros - the dollars going up!
That is a riot!!!
Non fa una piega! Great explanation, I think you made it very clear. Thanks very much for your comment, I am always surprised to read random bloggers comments on my blog.
That is just brilliant...made me laugh so hard i fell of my chair..Daniele sei un mito:)
