I’m sure that the little girl in the back seat of the car ahead of us is signing us.
She may be around 6 years old.She is closing her fingers and opening them. She started saying something. Now she is pointing her finger upwards.
I am getting nervous by each minute unable to understand what she saying. I got my driving license recently and I’m not yet confident to drive on an unknown route. I cursed my husband for not driving us to my daughter’s school picnic. I hated the picnic organizers for choosing a park far away from my home.
Should I stop and check my car? No, it’s illegal to stop on the road.
Should I overtake the car ahead of me and stop? No. I don’t want to take such risk.
Finally, I asked my 6-year-old daughter sitting in the back seat “Sweetie, do you know that girl? What is she saying?”
“Mummy. She is singing
‘Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
like a diamond in the sky‘”
Now all her signs made perfect sense. How silly of me to get tensed unnecessarily!
