I was trying to put a DVD in for Lisa (6) to watch and, as always, I put it in the wrong player. She just shook her head in a knowing way and said,
"Mama, you are going off traffic. You never know which one it is."
I couldn't even think of how to respond because I had no idea what she was talking about. So, I ignored her and went about the business of getting the DVD playing. Apparently, she was dissatisfied with my failure to acknowledge her growing vocabulary because she soon added,
"I know what traffic means. It’s like if you have two pockets in your jeans and you have candy in one of them but you can’t remember which pocket it’s in. That’s going off traffic."
I'll have to contact Websters.
