Girls talk. And talk, and talk...

I'm curious about the gossip 'gene'.

Our pre-schoolers haven't seen each other (here) for a week or so (we did bump into each other in the park during the break!). You wouldn't have thought they'd accumulated so much to talk/brag about (especially as a parent when you get a 'grunt' in answer to "Did you have a good time today?").

Like a pair of old ladies in the corner shop, jibber jibber jibber! It didn't matter what we were doing or talking about in English, a sub-channel was in full flow all day! I guess that means they are code-switching effortlessly, which is not a bad thing....wonder if they gossip in English too or retain Japanese for not involving the grown ups? Think the latter!
