What Not To Say: Part II

Dilana: (from the kitchen - I'm in the bedroom) Mom?

Me: Yeah?

Dilana: I think I'm doing ok!

Me: That's great!

Dilana: You won't see my chiiiip!

Me: What chip? (Walking towards the kitchen)

Me: (After arriving and seeing her munching on something with another chip in front of her) What's that?

Dilana: .... You can have a bite, if you want.
