Little Pitchers

I was going to give a run-down of the Superbowl excitement from last night but the only think I could think was - I like baseball.

Speaking of that, we were gathered around the island in Eric & Raigan's kitchen, preparing to dine on some swine he'd roasted in the Big Green Egg last night. Eric commented that he hadn't installed sliders in the cabinets as Raigan had asked back before they were married. I said "Really Eric, I can't believe she doesn't just leave your ass". The instant the words escaped my mouth the little parrot named Kate, who was sitting right there on my lap (BAD mommy!) chirped "leave his ass!" At first I thought she was just mimicking me but upon reflection we all agreed it was actually intended as an invective regarding their marriage. Kate's not one to keep her opinion to herself, after all.

Y'ain't seen nothin' yet. Wait till she tells someone's Grammy (or great-aunt) that "Mommy really needs to leave his ass" at a family reunion. Now THAT is what they call special.

When my sister was 3 she lived with our grandmother. One day when a guest had gone on for a long time my sister said "You've talked enough, now it's time to go home." My grandmother was mortified but the guest's wife clapped her hands and said "Finally someone said it." So you never know, it might come in handy.

That'll evolve into, "leave his ass, but take the wallet that's under it."
