"Oh, Saia, NOW I know how we can open the scorpion ball*," says Chago on the way to school this morning.
"How, Santiago? Please tell me," replies his sister somewhat mockingly.
"We can get it open because we have WHITE teeth," he says, as if he just found the cure for cancer.
"Oh!" she says, equally enthusiastic. "Good job! Now we know."
*scorpion ball is a little plastic bouncing ball from those .25cent machines that's got a clear cover and a plastic scorpion inside, whom they've been trying to free for over a year now.
