And this is where being a Magical Dad comes in handy.
I asked her, “How does a cow ask for glue?” She blinked, stared at me. I said, with my best bovine accent, “GLoooOOOO.” After the laugh, I asked her, “How does a cat ask for glue? Gl-eow.” And we carried on with giggles, continuing through a menagerie of animals: dog, bird, duck, horse, and cracking up as we went along. She forgot about what she wanted and it’s been a running joke for us ever since.
Wish I’d filmed it but life is what happens when you’re making other plans.
