a quick lesson in humility and diction (UGH! The pun! The horrid, horrid pun...)

An actual conversation with my daughter this weekend

*Daughter points to something on the mantle*
Daughter: Whats that daddy?
ME: Thats a Clock.
Daughter: Cock?
Me, a bit unnerved: No, no...Clock...Clock
Daughter, proudly: Cock!
Me, having heart-attack: No baby...it's very important to say the L...Lock..lets just call it a Lock
Daughter: Lock?
Me: Right! Now go to your room...

Dude, didn't you know ALL two-year-old English speaking children say "cock" when they mean "clock"?

Or at least, mine does . . .

(Just wait until she starts saying "fork" on a regular basis . . .)

Yeah, I was totally unprepared for our little anunciation lesson. I could see how a toddler would have a little trouble with an L after a C...but my friend Adili was there and he said the look on my face is priceless...well, heartattack for laughs aint so bad, I always say...

What was it doing on the mantle? Oh, CLOCK...

My niece went through a phase with truck/fuck. And she REALLY liked to point out the trucks: "Look, a fuck!" Riding the bus with her was pretty embarrassing for a while...

I had a student the other day who I was teaching to describe foods. I told her that by adding -y to many words, you could expand your descriptive range. Like, "Meaty" I.e. lots of meat. I then told her it could also mean thick, and slapped my stomach as a joke. She pointed at me and responded "Meaty Dick?"

*raises an eyebrow*

Do I dare to inquire what happened next there, Daimushi?

I guess I do...
