The First of Many

Guess who said what this morning in the following conversation, as OC and I discussed her choice of clothing.

"Are you wearing your play jeans?"


"Do they have holes in the knees?"

*impish smile, which means yes

"You look like a.....a....what is the word?"


"Give me a minute. I'll think of it."


"Your minute is up."

"You look like a...why do I want to say flower, or muffin?"


*checks thesaurus

"A guttersnipe? Tatterdemalion? I've never heard of those. Wait, muffin was close. Ragamuffin! That's it. You look like a ragamuffin. Oliver Twist. Please sir, can I have some more?"

"Whaaaaat?!?" takes bowl away

The girl thinks quickly, I'll give her that.

Sigh, acceptance is hard. If I could have a dream career: eradicating to short pants the world over.
