Posy, listening to her Thumbelina CD: What does 'lingering' mean Mummy?
Me: It means to stay a little while longer.
Later on, at bedtime.
Posy: Mummy, will you linger a little with me?
Me, unable to resist such an offer: Of course my Posy darling. Linger, linger..
A very little later.
Posy: You can stop lingering now Mummy, your eyebrow is sticking up my nose.
