Jaysen and I were playing Hangman last night. He likes to think of the words just as much as trying to guess them. His word this time had 7 spaces. As the game finished ( and I was "hung"), I argued that he was indeed not playing fairly.
"ASLRMPZ is not a word."
"Yes it is a word!" (laughing)
"Then what does it mean?"
"Something to eat." (more laughing)
"Oh? Is it good or nucky?"
"What does it taste like?"
"Where do you buy it?"
"At the st...Target."
"How much does it cost?"
"One hundred fifty bazillionblarpzalalala"(jibberish)
He won the game because he defended his word. He actually made a case for it- something he has never done, and I might add, that I was mighty proud. It was amazing to watch his mind working to come up with all of those answers on the spot, and finding it hilarious that he was keeping the flow going (I think he amazed himself a bit too).
So, if anyone is at Target and you see an ASLRMPZ on sale, could you please pick some up for me? Apparently, my kid likes it.
I wonder if it qualifies as a vegetable?
