Whute Ben

Just got booted out of a seminar I was supposed to be attending this morning. Apparantly I fergot ta confirmed my attendances. Gawdammit.

Gone are the days when you could just read an email reminder to attend a seminar. Now there are all sorts of challenging requirements, like you hafta open the email, click on the linkages there and scroll down the webpage that opens until ya see a confirmation button and click on that. Maybe that's a built-in device to eliminate the stupid - if ya can't follow these instructions, then you shouldn't be here. That way the speaker won't have to dumb down the presentation, just fer the likes of me.

In other news, The Son has come up with a dazzling array of gibberish for us to decipher. Let's see, there's the blacklisted words, which we try to discourage him from saying:

1. Bitch (bridge)
2. Cock (clock)
3. Shit (sit)
4. Fuck (frog)

I'm not making this up. The blacklist is seriously a problem. He particularly enjoys screaming these words in taxicabs. To alleviate the problem, I try to avoid the taxicabs with the frogs in them.

There's the whitelisted words which we are still trying to get him to say correctly:

1. Whute ben (white van)
2. Boo Ka (blue car)
3. Back Ka (black car)
4. [hhmmmmm] (copper sulphate)
5. [hhmmmmm] (pursuant to section 7 of the Companies Act)
6. [hhmmmmm] (I have a Rhodes Scholarship)

Not much headway on the whitelist either.

My golden-haired cherub use to say
"buckey" for spider. Go figure.

p.s. We had an old house.

aha. the white list is so funny. but why do you want the little one to say copper sulphate? *scratch head*...

and just wanna say The Son is just oh so adorable! =)

Tazie: You must be a lawyer! If you were doing anything in the field of science, you'd have asked "why the Companies Act"?

Expat: Was there a cartoon spider named Bucky? Did you have a friend named Bucky who looked like a spider? Parents are trained to ask these very questions.

hehe. i wish i was a lawyer. the only reason why i didn't ask "why the companies act" is because i thought you wanted to give the Son a head start in law and to follow your footsteps. hiaks. yeah? =)

We were mystified. Big mofu Huntsmen spiders were common on our side of the tracks.

Yes, also am concerned about the copper sulphate? What you making for dinner?

Ooh, thinks: maybe we said "f*cking huge spider" once... and he only picked up the first bit. Who knows. I asked him recently and he pretended not to remember.

it's just futile, these 'efforts' to properly raise these kids in clinical, sanitary speech environments. impossible. 'bridge', I think, is a good variation - subtle yet still angst releasing for the utterer. as is 'buckey'. 'you buckey bridge!' ....ah. feels better already. like having a constant stuffed nose yet...still kinda releases those endorphins for saying something hurtful to a painful person.

Oh Gremlin.

Can we pls have more pics of Golden-Haired Cherub?

how old is golden-haired cherub now?

 
At 1:32 AM, Blogger expat@large said...

Gremlin: GHC is 29.

Smoot: you saw the best of those that I have digitized. The one of him lying on the couch is not good though. He is much more bucky handsome than that.
