Snow Peas

We had those for dinner tonight, along with rice and boiled pork chops (the grill does not light, and I suspect something in the manifold). C played our usual game of crunching the peapods and calling out the names of the neighbors he was waking up with the terrible racket. After going through his usual list of Miss Sandy, Mister Pete, Miss Sue, Miss Sharon... he announced that the next snow pea was going to wake up "my friend Elissa. And now that she is awake she can cook her dinner. And now I am going to wake up my friend Piglet." He asked for another serving of snow peas so that he could wake up Allison and Cash and Julia (who is allegedly magic) and Mark. We went through the whole list until we got to Spencer: "He is already awake."

I am so glad all of yez liked him; sometimes in the day-to-day of getting him washed, dressed, fed, slept and so forth I forget how cute C is.

I'd be crushed at not being mentioned by name, except I'm too thrilled that he apparently has forgiven Cash for snarking at him.

He still thinks Cash barked too loud, but he's not upset about it. (Sometimes I regret our insistence on telling him to use his words.)

snow peas and magic
Julia is, in fact, magic. I told C that she was magic and could vanish. And she wasn't the least bit visible when I said so. So it's clearly true.

I laughed about Spencer. He's working a 24 hour shift right now.

Re: snow peas and magic
Just because I am working a 24 doesn't mean that I don't sleep

Melt. (I was, in fact, taking a nap before dinner.)

Apparently, C remembers everything. I hope you are careful what you say in front of him!

Oh, yes. I am a little surprised that he has not repeated any of the strong language he heard over the weekend, but since it was mostly uttered without emphasis and without comment about its taboo nature it seems to have gone right over his head. Or perhaps he just hasn't had occasion to use it, and three months from now he will repeat it word for word.

(It's most often when driving that we have to exercise restraint. There have been enough close calls that the fear of hearing, "Why did you say 'Use your %#$%#$% turn signal you %$%#$% %^%^$%^ $%#$%' to that car?" is omnipresent.)
