I mean, either context works! I'm a dad from Pennsylvania, so it works! I've got three unimaginary boys!
I have one highly imaginative daughter who currently creeps up on me, shouts banana, and collapses in fits of laughter, despicable! Well I say creeps up, but, "Daddy don't look" is a less than subtle hint.
Haha, that's great! Yeah, subtlety is not exactly a strength for children at first. Anytime I'm in the room, and the kids want to break a rule? "Daddy, can you leave?" Yeah, not suspicious!
