Kids say the Darndest . . .


Last night we were up at Mountain Road Ranch to visit Wildbound and Wildman. NAM, Lemur and Pocketmouse were outside while the adults were "talking" inside. Lemur came in to show me what they were up to. Handing me an unshelled walnut, Wildbound explained that the kids were outside cracking them open and eating the nuts. I asked Lemur to go open one for me. He did and I ate it. He then held up three others and said, "These are for daddy."

"Sure, sure," said I, trying to keep up with the Voucher conversation and the debate whether we were all created "good" or created "equal."

Lemur then spotted a bag of dried apples and decided he'd rather fill his hands with those. "Excuse me?" he asked politely.

"Yes, Lemur weemur?"

He held out his full hands to me,"Will you hold daddy's nuts?"

"Uh. . ."

Yes, I did notice some nuts on the counter when I got home. Wondered what nuttiness had been going on. Hmmm...did "daddy" leave his here?

Does this mean we have another family euphemism?
