Peter Butter, etc.

One of my coworkers is the proud mother of a four-year-old. Her super sense of humor and ability to make people laugh has been passed down to her son. She told me the following story the other day and has generously allowed me to re-tell it here.

She has been working with him on his enunciation/pronunciation with words. For example, if he were to say "pasketti" rather than "spaghetti" she would say to him:

"No, D., it's spuh-get-tee not pasketti."

And then he would try saying it correctly.

Well, the other day, she asked him if he would like a peanut butter sandwich. To which he replied,

"No, Mommy. It's pee-ter but-ter. Say it. Pee-ter But-ter."

I practically had tears streaming down my face I was laughing so hard. I'm giggling now as I type this.

Minor update: Remember my post about the crazy aunt thing? Well, I got 2 books from the lady whom my aunt wants me to meet. She wrote me the nicest letter and even autographed the books! She is a very successful woman, and I must say, getting a package from Fifth Ave. in New York City might be the most glamorous thing to happen to me in months! Oh, what a sad existance I lead...but anyway, one of the books is full of good advice for young women, so I'm about to tear into it. Is it tacky to name-drop on a blog? I had never heard of her or her books until my aunt got us in touch. I'm sure there is some kind of etitquette rule I'm breaking right now. Oh well. I'm just trying to share a book recommendation and illustrate how mundane my day-to-day life is! No offense meant!

Also, I simply must buy something from this website! My sentiments exactly! Who says librarians have to be frumpy, grumpy and have no sense of humor? Batgirl was a librarian, you know. She's pretty cool, I think. I think I have my 2006 Halloween costume picked out...

Less than an hour until my nice long weekend starts! I'm sure something blog-worthy will happen, readers! Stay tuned! And wish me luck in the love department!

Hey, that Librarian Gear website is awesome!! I wish I had more librarian friends so I could order them it is, the only librarian I know is my junior high friend's mother, who must be at least 60 by now..

Have a great long weekend!

Very cool website! The great thing about the web is that it can target niche customers far better than a store.
