So yesterday I had to pick my husband’s up at his office. After I picked Isa up at the creche, we walked together to the car park. Next to the car park there was a demolition process going on.
And there was one heavy machinery working on demolishing the building (which was already a ruin by that time), with a loud voice.
Isa, being fascinated with all forms of transportation now, noticed the sound and that machine.
‘Mama, mama.’, he called me (Yes, he is yet to call me ‘Mommy).
I turned to him, and he pointed to that machinery saying ‘Aa!’.
Well, at that point I was about to open my mouth to teach him the name of that machine, but I just lost it. I don’t know the correct name.Was it a backhoe? Pretty sure backhoe is something different. Was it a crane? No, I don’t think so.
I felt really dumb when all I could reply to him this: ‘Yes, Isa, I saw it. Aa.’, as if to agree with the name he put.
Do today I found out that It is an excavator.
Excavator, you idiot.
I better learn all the names of heavy equipments before I get into that dumb situation again.
