True, "Can we change Alex's name?"
Me, "Sure we can. To what?"
Me, "Frog Alex or Alex Frog?"
True, "Frog Alex."
Me, "I don't think so."
Me, "Because Frog is a dirty slang word for being French. And in this day and age, there's not a lot lower than being called French."
True, "Even better, you should have named him French. That really suits him."
True, "Because he wants to cut off my arm. Isn't that French? Don't they chop off people's heads and stuff? It's perfect. He's Frog Alex to me now."
I hate these conversations. I am so confused by the meandering nature of child speak. You would think anyone of average intelligence would have mastered this after eight years, but not I.Posted by shoe at March 29, 2007 07:24 AM | TrackBack
