    www.russianpod101.com Learn Russian with Russianpod101.com! You learned a lot the last time you agreed to watch your niece…and this time, the joke's on her. Yes, last time, she thought she was so smart because she knew the Russian names for so many insects in your garden. But she is only five years old, and you are pretty sure that you have her this time! You have a bug day planned – of gardening again. She loves it, and it is an excellent chance for you to show off your new Russian insect vocabulary that you have been practicing. As you follow her out into the flower garden, she looks back at you with those big patronizingly sweet eyes and says in Russian, "Look, what is this bug called?" Oh, she's fast: she thinks you don't know this answer. You kneel down next to her, sneer on your face, and reply sweetly in Russian, "Honey, that is a spider, and it looks like it's protecting itself from you." Astonished, she whips her head around to face you and replies with a simple, "Oh." You point to another bug nearby and explain in Russian, "And look here, the cicadas are climbing up the tree." She stares at you in disbelief and replies in Russian, "I don't want to look at bugs any more, let's go work in the garden!" Looks like you beat her at her own game AND get some help with that unruly garden too! Nice job! www.russianpod101.com
