All at once he said, “Let’s play a game! I’ll shout letters. You write them on the board with the wet sponge as quickly as you can.” “A,” he shouted. She wiped a watery A.
“Eight,” he shouted. She made a watery 8.
The sentence is from a children's book Thank You Mr. Falker.
I have no idea what wiping a watery A and making a watery 8 mean in the sentence. Could you explain what they mean? Thanks.
