Tater has been keeping us giggling this week.
Tater had a new friend over to our house, and she was very pleased to give her the grand tour. I couldn't help eavesdropping. "This is the mudroom, and don't eat that brown stuff. It's dog food." The guest nodded solemnly and promised not to eat it.
T: Do you know that ladybugs can make a stinky smell?
M: No, I never noticed.
T: Mrs. G said that when a bird, like a kookaburra, tries to eat the ladybug, the ladybug makes a stink. I think it's like the ladybug is pop-poppin'! And the bird says, 'Eww, that's too stinky!' (eruption of giggles)
Tater and the Nugget were playing on the couch at maximum silliness, when Spork decided to join them. Spork tripped a bit on the pillows and blankets involved in the scenario, and Tater said, "Awww, c'mon up here, you big buddy!"
Tater saw a man who reminded me of Hulk Hogan in the parking lot. He was wearing an American flag bandanna tied around his head. She shouted, "Look! There's Captain America!"
Today, she mused, "Why are people bald? Is it because they don't want to be hairy?"
