Conversation while showing Allison a book filled with animal pictures:
Jer: This is a frog. A frog goes ...
Me: Ribbit, ribbit.
Jer: This is a cow. A cow goes ...
Jer: This is a pig. A pig goes ...
Me: Oink! Oink! Oink!
Jer: Here's a bear. A bear goes ... GRIZZLE, GRIZZLE.
Me: Grizzle, grizzle?
Me: Not grr? ... Grizzle?
Jer: Why not?
Me: Or how about "growl?"
Jer: I stand by grizzle.
Me: Hell, maybe even "roar" would've been more appropriate.
Jer: Grizzle's GOOD.
Me: Is it even a word?
Me: You realize that if she rides the short bus to school, it's totally going to be your fault.
