Totally Hot!

Last night, we were watching the 1976 remake of King Kong while eating a late supper of delicious lasagna soup.  The leading lady, Jessica Lange, was lolling about sensually on the ships berth in a little black dress whose plunging neckline HAD to have been held in place by copious amounts of double-stick tape *ouch!* in order to avoid  serious "wardrobe malfunction."  Just then, Logan said, "That's hot!"

A quick glance at my eight-year-old son helped me realize he wasn't talking about the actress, but the soup.  Phew!

Kids Say the Darndest Things

Being in middle school has been the social event of Hannah's LIFE.  She came in yesterday sighing with satisfaction at having had  such a really good day.  With a bit of nonchalant interrogation, she shared this story:

Upon being deposited at school, she exclaimed in a rather good English accent,  "Oh no! I've left my spectacles on the bus!"  Her friend Mikey repeated her, "She's left her testicles on the bus!" allegedly  mis-saying "spectacles." Hannah turned pink as she retold us the story, Logan and I laughed with her at his blunder; good times!

THEN, this morning, Logan reminded me about the story, "He said tentacles instead of spectacles!" he sniggered at the other fellow's unfortunate error.

I guess "testicles" has not been one of his vocabulary words in third grade yet, so "tentacles" will have to suffice.
