she says (part VI)
Olive: "what does evasive mean?" Me: "where'd you hear that word?" Olive: "I just made it up!" In the bathroom: "Hey, don't flush yet! We're gonna do a flush-and-run. You flush, I'll run." Crying/wailing/freaking out: "Mom….MOM! I've got... the goosebumps ....

let's call him charlie
