“Guess what?!” Little Frank whispered loudly.
“What?!” I whispered back just as loudly.
“I’m. about. to lose. a tooth!” (notice the strong emphasis Frank used as he whispered every word)
“You lost a tooth?!” I whispered back.
“He’s about to lose a tooth,” little Frank’s mom said (not in a whisper).
“Oh, you’re about to lose a tooth?” I said to Frank.
“That’s what I said!” whispered Frank.
That interaction just about made my whole entire day.
