Levi loves to frustrate his sister. Today on the way home from my parents' house, he said, "Que es eso?" (What is that?) to Emilia.

She said, "Es una bandera." (It's a flag.)
Levi, apparently hearing only the first syllable of the last word, said, "pan?" (bread?)
Emilia got a little frustrated at Levi's apparent hearing loss, so she said it louder and accented the syllables. "BAN - DERA."
I could just imagine the wheels turning in Levi's head. He wants to have fun making her frustrated, but he doesn't want to get in trouble. So just one last time he asked, "Pan?"
Emilia practically yelled, "BAN! DER! A!"
Levi responded in a sing-song voice that let me know he knew all along, "O-oh, banDEra."
