Me: Do you think you can ignore that dust devil whirling up the hill towards us?
Kanani: Um...well, maybe. Maybe not...
Me: How about if we turn our backs to it and side-pass to distract you?
Kanani: Wait. What IS that? Never saw anything like THAT before!!
Me: Now, now. I'm sure they have dust devils--okay, tornadoes--in the Netherlands...No?????
Kanani: LOOK! It's coming right at us!
Me and Kanani: Cough! Cough! Cough!...Gasp! Gasp!...Snort!...Wheeze!...Blink! Blink!
Me: Sputter, sputter...Oh, Kanani!...What a good boy you are! You stood rock still and took care of me!
Kanani: Snort!...Geez, Mom, what'd you expect?...Snort!
Me: Good boy! Good boy! Good boy!
Kanani: Enough with the "good boys." Where's my carrot?
