Growing up, I used to avoid the word “matching”. It sounds like “matsing”, the local word for monkey. I used to get teased a lot because my nickname sounds like monkey. I hated being teased so anything related to monkeys and bananas, I tried to avoid. Kids can be so mean. Or maybe I was just too sensitive.
Or maybe, I just ramble too much. Anyhoot, I got the idea for this game from Faye’s post about teaching colors. I showed Aki how to play the game once. After that, he has been doing it all the time. I don’t even have to prompt him. One time, I could not understand why he got suddenly all excited. Turns out, his Jellyace was the same color as the star on my shirt.
