Haven’t had a decent ‘kids say’ in over 6 months but tonight Hannah came out with one.
While winding down from dinner, but still seated at the table, Hannah said, “Do I have a wisp?”
It took me a minute to get what she was saying and I started trying to think of what she meant when she followed it up with;
“I don’t know how to say it, but a kid on the bus says I do.”
I understood immediately what she meant and I broke out into laughter. She gave me one of those, ‘now what the hell is so funny’ looks so I explained it to her.
“Hannah, what the kid on the bus meant is a lisp, and no, you do not have one, at all (she doesn’t).” My wife added in, “If you did, you couldn’t pronounce your L’s” and I finished with “and you would say ‘wisp’ instead of ‘lisp’.”
She gave me one of those, ‘oh, OK then’ looks and one of her little grins, and I knew my laughter was OK until the next time.
