You can’t hurry love

Adelaide comes into the bedroom and hands Daddy a sheet of paper with numbers on it.

Adelaide: I made a secret code! Read it!

Daddy: I can’t read this code. What does it say?

Adelaide: It says, “I…love…you!”

Daddy: Oh, thanks, Adelaide! I love you, too!

Adelaide runs out of the room and returns a few minutes later with another piece of paper with numbers on it.

Adelaide: Here you go, Mommy! It’s a secret code!

Mommy: Oh, nice! What does it say?

Adelaide: It says, “I…like…you!”
