I'm not Jaime, but...
Thank you too!
Even know-it-mosts occasionally have some Redeeming Social Value.
When I'm not stinking up the place with unforgivable puns (as though there's any other kind).
Someone is in a spunky mood!
To quote one of my favorite New Yorker cartoons: "Whom, meem?"
Not exactly the same thing but my oldest son (11) has this look where he tilts his head, has his lips curl up and says HUH? He only uses it when he is trying to pretend he doesn't know what I mean when I said he did something wrong. Grrrr.... I thought about it because it is often followed by, "Who me? What did I do?" Sometimes if I'm really lucky he says it really loud and gets really dramatic when we are in public. I'm teaching him that I'm tougher than him (even though on the inside sometimes I'm even embarrased and of course always exasperated). It's on my forbidden lists of looks and comments in my house now.
"Who meem?" reminds me of a little girl waiting her turn OR someone being a smart alec (I can guess which one you are..hehe). Now that we are talking about wanting something (yes, I purposely steered the conversation and it wasn't too easy), I want some ICE CREAM! Want some? Do you have any?
Nice segue, there, cutNglue: have you noticed that redirection is a really useful teacher tool?
It's atypically cool in these parts this evening, so my thoughts are running more to chocolate-chip cookie dough, I'm afraid.
Ooooohhh, ICE CREAM! Oops, sorry, don't have any. If you get some will you send me some via email? Unfortunately, the only ice cream I SHOULD have (diabetic) is virtual ice cream. sigh
