Nothing Sweeter

I was folding laundry and overheard this conversation emanating from another room:

Alex: Who's my favorite baby? (Pause.) Say, "Me", Audrey.

Audrey: Me!

Alex: Who's my favorite baby?

Audrey: Me!

Alex: Awww! Give me a hug, Baby! (Pause.) Aww!

Alex: Would you like me to read a book to you?

A few moments pass as they are engrossed in A Fly Went By.

Alex: This is a long book. Do you want me to read all of it?

Audrey: Uh huh!

The Fly Went By resumes.
