Conversation with Marianna:
Me: "Marianna do you want lasagne for dinner?"
Me: "I can make you some eggs if you like."
M: "I want eggs!"
Me: "If you'd like me to cook you some eggs can you please say: "Mum, I'd like some eggs please." "
M: "Mum, I'd like eggs."
Me: "You need to say please. That's the polite thing to do."
M: "I can't."
Me: "You can't do what?"
M: "I can't say it." (Eyes welling up with tears.)
Me: "You can't say "please"?
Me: "Why not?"
M: (Bursting into tears.) "Because it hurts my tongue."
Interesting. I think she must have the same condition as The Fonz. You know how he couldn't ever say "Sorry".
