“Miss, the boys dood something bad.”
They dood, dood they?
I don’t correct her directly. I just put that word “did” somewhere in the next sentence. She’s a talker and, for a language learner, that’s a good thing.
She’s also quite an artist. I love Mochi. If “the purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls,” as Pablo Picasso once said, I expect Mochi to live out her life with a shiny, dust-free soul.
