and I told him to stop do so, that it did hurt.
He then told me he has seen monkeys do so.
I told him, I'm not a monkey, I'm a "människa" (human being)
and he is too.
No, he said, he wasn't a "människa".
Yes, I said again.
No, he said, and his lips started to shiver.
Yes, I said, you're a human and dogs are dogs.
I don't want to be a "människa", he said.
Why not? I asked.
I want to be a "barn" (kid).
I had hard to not laugh here, because he was so sad and serious about this.
I then told him, he is still a kid even if he is a human, and I'm a human
and Emil is a human too even if he's a baby.
I think he accepted it after that.
