Me: Would you like more toast, Elisabeth?
Elisabeth: No, thank you. Just some syrup, please.
Me: Would you like your syrup in a glass?
Elisabeth:Yes! (Note of excitement creeping into her voice)
Me: I'm sorry, but I'm not serving syrup that way today. Would you like anything else?
Elisabeth: May I have some candy?
Me: No candy for breakfast; would you like something else?
Elisabeth: I would like some toast!
Hey it was worth a try!
