Names

On a packed bus during the school run, a young mum is loudly helping her small daughter remember her somewhat extensive collection of names

To whit:

Young mum: So, what’s your name?
Small daughter: Sophie
YM: What else?
SD: Um…
YM: Sophie… Jade… Esme… anything else?
SD: Um…
YM: Summer…
SD: Why did you call me Summer?
YM: Well, we couldn’t call you Winter, could we?
Me: No; that would be stupid…
