Speaking in Third Person

“Mike”: Miss, how do you speak in third person?

Me: Instead of saying, “I want this” you say, “Mike wants this.”

“Mike” (thinks for a moment): So, it’s like translating for yourself?

Me: I guess, a little…

“Mike”: ‘Mike’ wants to go to the bathroom.

Me: Sorry, ‘Mike’ can’t go right now.

“Mike” (gesturing to himself): ‘Mike,’ Mrs. Crumpett said “‘Mike’ can’t go to the bathroom right now.”
