tubes for one and all

Wookie? Rookie? Snooki? I have no clue what you are talking about, Alice.

As I mentioned Monday, The Kidling spent last weekend with her adoring grandparents. While recounting her many adventures to The Dada and me, she told a detailed story about their car ride to the zoo. It involved calling all passing vehicles “wookies” and pretending to throw “big fat mommies” and “big fat daddies” at said wookies. Or was it “rookies?” “Workies?” “Snooki?” I truly had no idea what she was saying.Okay, I made up the last one. Notice it isn’t in blue. That’s your clue that The Mama is full of it. But I just couldn’t resist a gratuitous celebrity mention (I learn from the best).

The point is, Alice was telling a story but could not get past the fact that The Mama did not understand the name of the game. Obviously frustrated with me, she finally declared: “Maybe you need to get tubes, too, because you can’t hear me. You can’t understand me. Maybe you can get those today.”

  1. You’re right – seeing Snooki was a bit disconcerting – I thought I was going to miss Alice’s words of the day!! I don’t know the game either, but it sounds like it was fun! 🙂
