“It looks like a what?” I mutter, distractedly still not looking up.

“This stick. It looks like a square word.”

I stand up and look at the stick and my daughter, brow furrowed, trying to work out what she’s attempting to tell me. And then it dawns. Just a moment too late.

She’s already sticking two fingers up at me as an explanation.
