My daughter, Lord love her, is Looney-Toons Crazy.
So she's sitting here, coloring a picture of a Thanksgiving cornucopia with the traditional vegetables of the season: a pumpkin, some corn, a few acorns and squashes... and these round things that look like they could be anything from apples to new potatoes to some really swollen cranberries.
And Gigi, in an effort to get some variety of color, asks me, "So what color are the guacs?" (pronounced GWAHX)
GIGI: Yeah, the guacs.
ME: What the heck is a guac?
GIGI: You know those things Dad uses to make that nasty green stuff?
ME: What nasty green stuff?!
GIGI: That nasty green stuff you put on chips.
ME: You mean guacamole?
GIGI: (Rolling her eyes like, duuuuh, you stupid woman) YES. The. GUACS. What color are the GUACS before you pulverize them?
If anybody would care to explain to me how this child can have the word pulverize in her vocabulary and also be laboring under the impression that guacs are an actual vegetable, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Thank you. Much obliged, I'm sure....
