It is a very pleasing table and I am glad to have it. And now that we have a table, it can be the setting for rewarding interactions like this one.
JANE: Muk! Muuk? Muk.

ME: Can you say "milk, please"?
ME: "Milk, please?"
ME: "Milk, please."
JANE (encouraging): Yeah!
ME (pouring milk): Well, I'm glad we had this little conversation.
