Where: In the Library
While trying to check out books, Luna decides to go into her " I’m a helpless 2 year old" mode. She grunts and whines while stretching her arms up.
I look at her and say "I don’t speak whine. Please use your words."
Grinning, she continues her dance of impatience, grunting and reaching.
"Words, the English language. A way to communicate among humans. I know you can do it. Use your words, please"
She gives up. Drops her arms and says clearly "mommy, will you please pick me up? I want you to hold me"
The librarian lost it. Just lost it. She told me she expected Luna to say "Uppy" not a full sentence.
I said, "This is why I talk to her like that. I know she can talk. She just wants to be younger sometimes…"
Where: Our kitchen
when: last week
I went to clean up the counter tops from lunch boxes. I notice apple peals…
"Did you put Apples in Soleil’s lunch?"
"You put apples in her lunch. On the day they are going apple picking?"
Laughter ensued..I guess you had to be there.
Where: At a restaurant in San Francisco, Garlic Theme
When: First week of October
Boss: "I have GOT to get something here for J. He thinks he is such a stud"
Me: "Hmm, he’s not a hot sauce kind of guy?" pointing at the glass bottles of hot sauce in the shape of a rather shapely naked woman
Boss:"Oh MY G-d! Garlic Condoms! I have GOT to get this!"
Me: just laughing
When:1 week later
Me:" Hey J! Did you get the present that Boss got for you in San Francisco?"
J:"Yes, but it’s too small!"
J:"oh shit, I shouldn’t have said that. Are you thinking that I am sexually harassing you?"
Me:" Nah, but I would have thought that it would have been too big for you" Ducks as he tosses a stuffed animal at me!
