Sean: Ender! Why did you spill Mama’s coffee?
Ender: I not spill coffee. I pour coffee out.
Sean: The question stands: Why? Why? Why?
Ender: I have to pee.
Sean: Of course. Let’s go.
Ender: No. I pee in coffee cup. That’s why I pour coffee out.

P.S. I’m back from the land of the sun and the mouse. Mired in critical deadlines. So you’ll only see me around if the work isn’t going well. In which case, you need to look at me very sternly–in my IRL eye or my cyber-eye–and say, “Get back to work, Jane!” My clients thank you in advance.
P.P.S. Cloudy With a Chance of Wine, that’s the coffee cup you’re getting if you ever have the guts to visit my house. Ha!
