Ineke, the Connect Four champion of the wooooorrrrllllldddddd!~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Judah asked Andrew "Can I pleeeease have a piggybank ride?"
(The backstory: after having washed her hands after an encounter with a rotten egg, we were all in the van on the way to church.)
Judah calls from the backseat- "I still smell rotten egg!" to which Adele' replies, in all seriousness, "I washed my hands! It must be Mama's armpit thing!"
I do keep my deodorant in the glove box and tend to only remember to put it on for church- but I refuse to believe it smells anything like rotten eggs. OR maybe she was referring to my armpits without deodorant?
Judah: "Oh no! The mums got frost bites!"
Corynn is growing so old (and she likes to believe, wise) that the funny-isms are few and far between. But every now and again I catch one.
Having had a failed tooth extraction the day before, when I asked Corynn to change Ineke's diaper for me she replied in a truly Anne Shirley sort of way " Oh, but I can't! I'm INVALID. Er... I mean an INFIDEL. Er....I mean...."
"I believe you mean INFIRMED. Now, go change that diaper!"
Describing the mutations of genes in hyenas- and specifically, the birth canal being too long and thin to safely deliver pups, Corynn referred to it instead as a root canal. The aforementioned tooth issues must have been on her mind.
After having gone to the drugstore for a prescription, Adele' spotted the bag on the table and said "Oh look! Mama has been to the drunk store again!"
