Po-tate-o, Po-taht-o


On St. Patty's Day I asked Lucy what she learned about St. Patrick at school. I was pretty impressed at her recollection, until her last 'fact,'

"...And then he became a pope."
"What? Pope? No, Lucy, he became a priest."
Shrugging, "Pope, priest, same thing."

Going to Home Depot one day she was giving me the low-down on the swing set my folks have been looking for,
"So now they are just waiting until the swing set is free."
"Free? You mean on sale?"
"Free, on sale, same thing."


We went to the Farmer's Market and Lucy was upset that the cashier didn't give her any moneys back. While trying to explain the economics of money I had her subtract five minus eight for her to see how many quarters she had left,

"That's fruchting, right?"
"What?"
"Fru...what's that called again?"
"What's what called?"
"You know...fru...fru...when you take eight minus five."
"Subtraction?"
"Yes! That was subtraction, right?"

Kids are so funny sometimes. I always think that I should write down what my kids say more often so I can remember it when I am old.
