Shannie: What does partly mean?
Mom: it's kind of like halfway.
Shannie: but what does it meeeaaaan. i wish you could hear inflection in script, this attempt was the best I could do
She says that a lot. things like "sounds like, it reminds me of, or kind of like" don't work for her. She likes specifics
Mom: It means a little bit of something and a little bit not I know brilliant right
Shannie: Ohhhh Thinking about it...
Shannie: Like in the morning before you've had your coffee... your eyes are partly awake?
Mom: Ha, exactly.
Shannie: And then in the night after my bath I'm partly naked when I'm just wearing a towel?
Mom: yup, you've got it.
Shannie: And after I've had dinner but before dessert, I'm still partly hungry?
Mom: I think you've figured it out.
Shannie: Or when I've done something bad but it's a little bit funny, you are partly mad and party laughing?
Mom: Yes, like that
Shannie: Can i tell you a joke?
Mom: sure... curious as to how this relates
Shannie: Don't worry, it will be partly funny..
