More Foolishness from the Mouths of Babes

N: These boys were fooling around, and (name) kicked (other name) in the tentacles.

Me: Oh @!?! I forgot to call my Dad for Father's Day.
T: Maybe you could just call today and tell him Happy Melated Father's Day.

(Waking up. Z puts her hands over my eyes, then removes them)
Z (big grin, sing-song voice): Boo-boo!

Hmmm. I love Italian.

Scene: Our living room. The girls are looking at a book N has brought home from the library.

Miss N: Hey Z, wanna learn about the cannoli-al days?
Me: What?
N: The cannoli-al days?
Me (looking at the cover): Can you try that again?
N: Oh. (exaggerated pronunciation): The colonial days.

Holiday Headstart

Ahem. If there happened to be someone out there who wanted to get a headstart on their holiday knitting, like say, a lovely pair of socks for their beloved daughter in law, I would highly encourage them to check out the summer issue of Knitty.

As for me, I'm highly tempted by the adorable Elenka. It's just too cute. And I love lime green, so it's doubly attractive.
