My grandkids spent the weekend with me and we had a perfectly delightful time. We baked and frosted heart cookies, they made Valentines for their mom out of lacy doilies and construction paper and stickers I had bought them, we watched movies, ate pizza, and giggled a lot.
My granddaughter, Emma, is Precocious (capital "P" intended) and more intelligent and insightful than any 10-year-old has a right to be. She as also highly imaginative and funny, and has bestowed nicknames upon my dog, Mia, whose name (much to her chagrin) has morphed into Mee Mee Mo, Meemus, and Beemus Moker.
So today Emma asked me, "Gammy, how much do you spend on Beemus Moker?"
"Excuse me Emma," I answered, "but that is a personal question and one you have no business asking."
Perplexed look. Head tilted sideways. Scrunched up nose. "But why? I just want to know, that's all."
"Again Emma, that is a nosy question and Gammy isn't going to answer it."
Same body language, look, head, and scrunch. "Well okay, I was just wondering because if you have some money left over you could take Beemus Moker to this special dog party place on her birthday."
Gammy now has perplexed look, head tilted sideways, scrunched up nose.
Then it dawned on me. I thought she had asked, "How much do you spend on being a smoker?"
Cracked me up, it did.
And now they've gone home and I'm going to collapse into bed .......zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....................
