Chip and I were driving down the road yesterday, talking about letters of the alphabet. Do you know how hard it is to come up with words that begin with a certain letter? Try it! See – hard. Right???
“Aaaaa – what letter is that sound”
“No, no, listen “aaaaa”. It starts the word apple”
“Um, no. “aaaaa” – It is an “A” Chip!
“Good! It also starts words like Aunt Amy and, um, apple (shit – already said that one), and um, ant (way to confuse the kid)! And………………….. anteater!” (I am sooooo lame)
“What is an anteater, mom?”
“A big hairy animal with a long snout that goes around sucking up ants with its snout. We’ve seen one at the zoo.”
“Well, I know it can’t live in a desert because then it would die from sucking up sand.”
Um. Yeah, ok. Well thought-out, my boy.
