tolle!

Standing in the kitchen with The Wife and The Little Buddy (third boy), drinking coffee, astride a bottle with milk on the floor. LB between us.

The Wife: Pick up that bottle and put it here on the counter. (pantomiming) Pick up that bottle and put it here on the counter.

The Little Buddy stands and stares at her.

ME: (pointing) tolle! (two syllables)

LB picks up bottle and puts it on table.

The Wife: (looking at me) I think he knows more Latin than I do!
