Good morning Everyone!
Last weekend, Mark, Kayla and I went to Huntsville to attend a recital given by one of my sisters, who is a gifted soprano. The recital was at her church, so as Mark and I were looking for the church’s address on our Garmin. Mark asked what I was looking under, and I told him “Church of the Nativity.”
In the back seat of the car, Kayla (who fades randomly in and out of conversations these days with often hilarious results) said suddenly,” That’s a terrible name for a church!”
When asked to explain, she said,” The Church of Negativity? Who would want to go there?”
It took Mark 3 blinks and me 5 to contain our amusement where we could calmly explain that the deletion of two letters changed the meaning from something unpleasant to something wonderful.
She did roll her eyes at me when I announced after the explanation, “Coming soon to a blog near you!”
Have a great day!
Laughing my socks off!
That’s great! Thank you for stopping by.
Aren’t pups great things. If Kayla understands and uses “negativity” she has a better vocab than some college students I have in some of my lit presentations. Woof Woof
Thanks Sandy! Pups, especially female human ones, are strange and mysterious creatures. Thank you for admiring my pup’s vocabulary!
A lesson on understanding the full conversation before joining in – I remember the looks the few times I thought I understood the what was being said and then discovered I was way off base. 🙂
