…story number one (as promised even though it would appear no one is reading anyway because apparently everyone in my circle has dropped off the face of the computer earth…I’m just sayin’ people, where’s the love).

A few weeks back Alden came in from playing outside, explaining that he had “fatty goo” in his mouth. 

Tim: What?  Fatty goo?  What is fatty goo?

Alden:  You know, when you’re super tired and you get that thick spit in your mouth.  Fatty goo.  That is what it’s called.

So Tim and I had a chuckle that Alden had named the thick spit in his mouth and we moved on.  Then, a few weeks and many mentions of fatty goo later Tim was playing a video game with Powell.

Powell:  Look Dad, we need to stop for a while and rest.

Tim:  Why?

Powell:  Down there, in the instructions it says that our character has fatty goo.

Tim:  Uh….Powell, are you talking about that right there (pointing to the screen)?

Powell:  Yes.

Tim:  Is that what you and Alden have been referring to when you talk about fatty goo?

Powell:  Yes.

Tim:  Powell, the word is “fatigue.”

(This is where I could also tell you that Kaitlynn said at that moment that she had fatty goo in her mouth and then I responded how I would have fatty goo….meaning fatigue….in my mouth too if I talked as much as her.  But I won’t, I’ll just leave you with a new word for your vocabulary.)

    Now, now… I missed one post. One stinkin’ post. That does not mean I have dropped off of the computer earth.
    So, just to clarify, does Alden imagine that when the people on the computer game are fatty-gooed that they have thick spit in their mouth? I wonder where that connection came from? LOL This reminds me of the time when Peyton pronounced Arkansas as Are-Can-zis. She just put a “ARE” in front on Kansas. Makes perfect sense, right? LOL!
