More munchkin mania


Grandpa, why did God invent wopses?
Invent what, dear?
Wopses.Why do I have to repeat myself all the time?
Oh, wasps!
-sigh- That''s what I said, for goodness' sake!
I don't know, honey. Why don't you ask Him?
Well, I just hope He has better hearing than you, Grandpa.

Mommy, Is Grandpa is going deaf?
I don't know, Sophie dear. Ask him.
Grandpa, are you going deaf?
What?
DEAF!!!! DEAF!!!! DEAF!!!!
There's a jar of it in the cupboard, dear.
-long sigh- Never mind, Grandpa.

Dear God I understand about Noah's Ark, but I wish you hadn't saved the mosquitoes. I just got bitten. By the way, any news about the train set?
Yours sincerely

Joseph Allsop, nearly 7


Mommy, Harry bit me!
Harry! Why did you bite Kiki?
I didn't. She put her finger in my mouth just as I was closing it.

You're not losing your hearing, it's the youth of the today who mumble. At least that's what my great grandmother used to complain of, and thirty years on I find she may be right.

I hate to contradict an A student, but I have been to Hell on a train, it was cold and also very wet and I came back. I think it probably freezes over regularly too as it is in central Norway. Regards Ruth.

What a comforting explanation, Ruth! My current bete noire is not mumbling teenagers but radio announcers who eat half the words in their sentences: "Today, the Prime Minister announced that in view of mmmememembbemememeleee e, he is recommending that all drivers of meoetntueewpewwrrre should be nmnmrkrr ewwe their memeehrhr with immediate effect".
