- Small talk can be really annoying.
- Things are always more fun if there’s another six-year-old with you.
- Though cousins – even boy cousins – can be fun too.
- Swimming underwater is more fun than swimming on top of it.
- Swimming with someone – even/especially Auntie [Mali] – is more fun than swimming alone.
- There are some things worth being woken up to see (eg fruit bats).
- Snakes and crocodiles and sting rays and fruit bats and cassowaries are cool.
- Hugs given with enthusiasm are the best.
