People Speaking – Plum

Restaurant smalltalk:

— “Children learn English better.”

— “Yes, especially from other children. A cousin from Canada visited me and brought her family along, and after a few days my daughter was speaking fluent English.”

— “Children always understand each other, no matter what language they speak.”

— “All people can understand each other! At the institution in which I work there’s one guy that speaks as if there’s a plum in his throat and you can’t really discern any words, but you understand him.”

— “Did you check it? Maybe he really does have a plum in his throat.”
