What did you say???

Last weekend, the boy said "fart on me" when he passed gas. He happened to be with my parents and the time, so my mother says to him incredulously - what did you say and then he repeats it for her like it's what he's supposed to say. She then begins the interrogation- that is not nice to say that, who taught you how to say that, etc. The boy tells him Pawpi (my father) says that. My mom finally puts it all together and tells him, no, Pawpi says "pardon me". The boy simply responds 'oh'.

My little brother for years thought that the canned fruit salad was called "fruit and cottontail", and because of this, that it came from the Easter Bunny.
I myself cannot pronounce the word "cinnamon" properly without a lot of effort, but I blame all my drug experimentation in the 70s for that.

Holy crap, that is one the funniest thing's I've read in a long time. I, yes me (I can't believe I'm confessing this) thought that the song "Natural Woman" had a chorus that goes, "You make me feel like that your a woman, woman." I discovered I was wrong when I was singing it at work and this girl coworker of mind totally caught it. I was so embarassed, but it was funny, so that made it okay. Wow, that was truly terrible.

That's pretty darn funny Spritzy. Maybe I should I post some of my conversations with the two year old.
