We ought to take this show on the road [Jan. 20th, 2007|08:12 am]

OK, so my ears have been infected for about a month now, so my hearing is even worse than usual. Combine that with The Boy's talent for getting words wrong, and you get conversations like this one:

The Boy: ...and then he drove away in his big-ass car...

Me: Sweetie, don't say big-ass. That's not a very nice thing to say.

The Boy: Not ASS. Big ASP. What's wrong wtih a great big asp?

Me: Nothing, but that's not really the saying. It's big-ASS.

The Boy: I see. But why is that bad? Ass is just something that makes things melt.

Me: No, dear...that's ACID.

The Boy: Oh. Never mind.

Connor will still say "damnit" sometimes but it's a bit distorted. When I ask what he just said he'll clearly give me a "darnit" so I don't know if he's damniting or just being lazy with his words but it cracks me up every time. ;)

Never underestimate the Parrot Factor in young kids. My husband had a heck of a time watching the p's and q's on occasion when he was in the Navy, because he would sometimes lapse into language that sounded like, well, he was in the Navy! It really wasn't a problem unless we were around any of his other Navy buddies, which fortunately was not too often.
